Strange Wonderful Things – An online rare plant store

June 29, 2019

I am researching ideas for my next version of Can You Make This Into A Garden…but I am giving you a sneak preview because I just can’t help myself. I once again picked a Fashion illustration by Can’t Not Know (a favorite of mine) and coming up with my garden I came across the Strange Wonderful Things website. Strange Wonderful Things is an online rare plants store (an Ebay shop) that sells really interesting and rare plants – most of which I have never seen before.
Do you think it is possible that this dress design wasn’t inspired by these flowers? I am in awe of the colors and wish that some of these were currently available to buy. If you are into the unique and extraordinary, then you should take a look at some of the other offerings.

TURQUOISE Ixia viridiflora a rare (and endangered?) bulb.

So you have a sneak peek at what is coming…I have lots of ideas to share, but if you have something you think would be great in this ladies’ garden…let me know and I will work to include it!

    Those turquoise flowers are out of this world! I have to hunt around to see if I can find anything similar in the cut flower market…
