There’s that moment with a picture on instagram, where you must find the whole account of the person who posted.  As it loads, you hope that every other picture is as good as that first one that caught your eye.  And the joy, when you’ve stumbled on a real treasure. I was drawn to the […]

Something went wrong (in the best way) when I recently ordered a few clematis vines to add to my garden. I was in the mood to add a few fantastic climbing vines to my garden. I was expecting 4 plants. But when the boxes arrived, I somehow got 16 (this is obviously not a complaint, […]

For over 25 years, running has been a constant in my life but with the recent onset of knee pain, my orthopedist has advised I pick a new form of exercise — which has led me to yoga. I’ve toyed around with yoga as a way to stretch and meditate over the past couple of years, but […]

I have been wanting to experiment with willow whips for making planted garden features like tunnels, walls and fun things that the kids might enjoy.  (check out this living arbor tutorial) But this living design by Godefroy de Virieu (the same guy behind the BacSac) has simply taken my breath away. The plant matrix is […]

I never get tire of this plant combo. Design trends come and go, but I’ve been inspired by this perfect plant pairing and gorgeous image for over a decade. ‘The Garden of Contrast’, was created by James Van Sweden and Sheila Brady. You can visit it yourself at Cornerstone Gardens in California. Michelle Derviss at […]
