My Philosophy

My passion for plants and design began as a child wandering in the woods, collecting flowers, moss, feathers, mushrooms and whatever else caught my eye. Today you'll find me doing much of the same; still exploring and collecting. 

A background in art history and a passion for travel influence my personal aesthetic of natural beauty created by weaving together classical forms while emphasizing the interplay of color and texture.

Alas, I wasn't born with a green thumb, but just like Claude Monet said, "“I must have flowers, always, and always!” Thank goodness for Anne Brooks Rudzki and Capital Roots Containers for bringing our household joy year round with exquisite designs that not only delight our family, but provide a gracious and beautiful welcome to any and all who come to our front door or gather for some fun or relaxation on our back patio.  Anne Brooks' meticulous eye for detail and her artistic sensibility transformed the stairs and front porch of our home.  She selected architectural landscaping containers that add character and interest to our patio and are the perfect accents in our planting beds. Each season I look forward to seeing what new plants, flowers and materials she will weave together. Capital Roots Containers has given our home a bold and welcoming entrance in the front and a peaceful oasis on the back patio year round!
