A common thread runs between art, nature, and science, as it does between design, horticulture and editing. The desire to create beautiful, healthy, and personal gardens that are without excess or clutter also celebrates the clean structure of clear, concise copy.

Variegated:
“Distinguished or characterized by variety; diversified” - The Free Dictionary, online

Variegation:
“Variegation is of horticultural interest for its inherited color patterns, formed by tissues in which photosynthetic pigments occur separately or in unusual combinations.” - Botany for Gardeners, Bruce Capon
