An Outer Banks Wedding

wedding flowers

After the arranging class last Wednesday, I had precisely 36 hours to cleanup, pack-up and hit the road.  (Hence my absence here).   I’m in North Carolina on the Outer Banks for a wedding that took place yesterday.   At the last minute my friend (the bride) called on me to whip up some flowers and I was able to throw these together from the remnants of our class (I love that kind of serendipity!).

These little arrangements (who in the picture are a little less than fresh after a long trip, a long day, and lots of love from little fingers) turned out to be perfect for all the little girls who walked the aisle (there were 7 of them including my daughter). They all loved to smell the sprig of lavender in each one and I like to think it might have helped calmed aisle-walking nerves.

The rest of it…grass seed heads from my Miscanthus Graziella, Wild Rose Hips, Privet Berries, and a little boxwood.  – rochelle

The Tarot Garden- Tuscany, Italy – Il Giardino dei Tarocchi

I thought I had done Italy enough to feel like, in my travels, I could venture on to new destinations…wrong.   I am obsessed with Il Giardino dei Tarocchi and it’s creator Niki de Saint Phalle. Located in Tuscany, Italy, it is an overwhelming sculpture garden created by a fascinating woman.  It is near impossible to…

Fire Truck Garden Guest Quarters

My husband and I have been day dreaming about turning our lower and unused three stall horse barn into some sort of fun summer house.  It seems like a big challenge that is very far down of the ‘to do’ list….but is nonetheless fun to dream about…. Somewhat along the same lines, I am intrigued…

In the Garden With: Garden Design Dana

My dear Dana Frigerio lives in in one of my most favorite places – the Amalfi Coast of Italy – can you imagine designing gardens there?!?  So of course her blog is duly inspirational and beautiful.  Surprisingly Dana says that she  was never interested in gardening when she was young, but now cultivates a kitchen…
