Bold Strokes



No one speeds up to the front door of the Joslins' Conyers Farm home. Instead, you slowly swoop and glide your way through the scenery before arriving at the parking circle that Alicia Joslin planted with a crazy quilt of coleus and other foliage plants. If you haven't picked up on the mood, if Alicia hasn't succeeded in decompressing you into leisurely Sunday mode by then, you haven't been paying attention. Because Alicia is doing her best to send you straight to nirvana.

As far as gardens go, Alicia Joslin answers to no one. First of all, Ray and Alicia Joslin bucked the trend toward reshaping the land when they built on their twelve-acre property. Although everyone else might be playing amateur geologist and putting hills where valleys used to be, the Joslins took one look at their property on Lake Converse and decided it would be foolish to fiddle with perfection. Instead, Alicia has spent the last twelve years highlighting the natural contours that came with the land. Rather than meddling with the genius of the place, she's accented the beauty of the natural geography. And, in this case, glorifying the Good Earth brought brilliant results.
