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!
