Daily Garden: Tin’s Utilitarian Franchise Garden

You guys know Megan and Matti (from Far Out Flora) right?

I shared this yesterday (but with different images) on my Gardenist column at Apartment Therapy….but I love it so much I am going  re-share this sweet story here too.   It all started with a shopping trip for local handmade treasures.   On their adventure, they came across the fantastic canvas pillows created by Tin of Utilitarian Franchise (BTW — these would be excellent on a patio chair and I am going to share my favs in another post later today!)

One thing led to another …. as it always seems to among gardeners … and the next thing you know Megan and Matti found themselves not just buying pillows, but making a visit to Tin’s wonderful garden. If you spend 5 seconds at Far Out Flora, and then you look at Tin’s garden, you can see how these three gardeners found an instant kinship. I love little stories of how people connect over plants, pillows, or whatever personal interests.

Tin’s Garden is a joyful personal expression painted in succulents, bromeliads and epiphytes that has creatively evolved over time (that is not a spelling error btw, he just hasn’t yet found and collected the ‘F’ to fully and correctly spell San Francisco!). I am in love!

You can read more about this garden, and Megan and Matti’s visit at Far Out Flora.  Also check out their full flickr stream of the garden here.

  1. Haha, I do sort of savor the irony of a place with Utilitarian in the name having a garden that is purely decorative :]

Before & After: KrossBow’s Tiny Pond Garden

Tiny garden, Tiny Pond — It doesn’t typically work. But tiny garden filled with pond….well that has some potential.   When faced with a little space, I often think it more wise to fill it full of much bigger statements than might seem appropriate.   Instead of scaling all the elements to the size of…

Minali Singh’s Lotus Lamps & Rocket Planters

As I have sort of begun to organize the chicken coop/ potting shed I am – with every item that gets discarded – wanting to fill the space with terracotta and other sweet containers for making indoor  and mini gardens.  I’ve discovered that perusing flea markets and consignment shops with the specific purpose of digging up pots,…

Happy Winter!

Happy Winter!

Happy Winter!  My mind is a jumble this morning as I am listening to a remarkable video (which I will share in a few minutes) and thinking about the New Year ( I always feel that today – the day after the winter solstice –  is much more of a new beginning than January 1st).  What’s on…
