With this third report of my reviews of Bloom 2016 I am going to share my experiences and feelings of the Tao Of Now garden that Claire Roche and I was invited to perform within the garden by Claire Power and Vispi Shroff.

Even so, now that I am at home looking at my photograph collection from Bloom, I have discovered that I did not capture all of the Show Gardens on camera. With some gardens I looked on with wonder and a kind of dreaming, so the thought of recording a pic or two just did not come to me.


I must also also condemn my bias, a bit, as I interpreted there being three types of gardens presented.
