  1. I think the wildflower trend is a nice one, but a bit overdone this year maybe? Having said that, the history of wildflowers in the garden and piece about William Robbinson earlier this week on the BBC coverage was very interesting and made it obvious that it is not really a new thing.

    It was also interesting to see that the “colour of Chelsea” this year is blue, which personally I hadn’t noticed until they showed the montage of amazing blue flowers. The B&Q vertical garden caused a bit of a debate with me and th missis as she seemed to think it was a good idea while I was arguing that it is more style over substance. I’d like to be proven wrong though.

  2. Always fascinating to see the varied uses of materials each year at the Chelsea Show. Thanks for posting your ‘take’ on the trends. Nigels swoopy stone wall with insect homes is such a nice detail. Would like to use that for an interested client. I wonder if stinging critters would want to nest there tho..how close to human living space do we want it? Great textures though.
    The video of Cleve in France with the sculptors of his columns was cool. Hmm , lots to ponder.

On Fire For Cuphea

On Fire For Cuphea

Occasionally, I will get the urge to obsess over a group of plants. I have gone mad for Magnolias, frenetic for Fothergilla, hysterical for Hydrangea, but now I am going crazy for a rediscovered genus. That genus is Cuphea or cigar flower (get it? on fire for Cuphea). Cuphea takes me back to my college…

Rose Bowl Parade Float Details.

Today is the last day before the big parade.  I can only imagine the last minute rush that is ensuing all over Pasadena.  I have never been to the Rose Parade, but have watched it in awe since I was a little kid.  My dad used to work for a company that sponsored a float…
