Maybe it is because of my current obsession with weaving, but I love the look of jute garden netting.
It has been stretched out across sloped areas throughout Central Park.
Gardeners there are also using it in difficult to maintain shadier areas, where tender plants might get washed away by heavy rainfall.
The DIYers among us will surely find other fabulous uses for it--I could see it used as a room divider or wall covering, and I love the thick bunches demarcating the edges.
Funny how humble, serviceable things can stop you in your tracks with their beauty.
