Plant Lust: Lotus jacobaeus

lotus jacobaeusAs if I am not already envious of the Californians and west coasters who are (presumably) blissfully going about their regular business (rather that waiting for the ominous coming of powerless days and the unknowing of when it will come back)….they can also plant Lotus jacobaeus.

Garden Gallery: Lauren’s Love in Every Language

I have total lusty garden envy this morning.  I have been checking out Lauren’s (the Garden Diva’s) beautiful (relatively) new website and I came across this drool inducing project.  She titled it ‘Love in every Language’ which has me wondering if there is some greater meaning to the design or if there is a fascinating…
