There are Things Awry Here

I am terribly light on the posting and I am sorry for that.  I am trying to get my ducks in order for the holidays as well as organize what feels like an epic shift in my own career focus.   I have decided to pare down my work in some areas in order to ramp…

Changing Seasons

I am struck today by the epic shift that not only am I feeling but it seems also so many around me feeling too.  It shouldn’t be a surprise to me that other designer and gardener types are moving into another gear, after all, winter is coming.  But I am feeling a bigger shift.  Perhaps…

Blogs I like – October 2010

How did September and October go for you?  Mine — were a bit out of control — but it is November 1st and is a new day. I am ready to be refreshed and organized in a new way.  First on the list is to give October a proper close out with the return off…

Garden Designers Roundtable: Healing Gardens – A Tale About What Makes a Garden Healing

Here is the thing. I cringed when I realized that I had inadvertently signed up to post about Healing Gardens. What do I know about “Healing gardens”? Little. Except that most I see make me wince. It’s the overworked themes, twee fiddily-ness, garden junk, and green nooks that are often tortuously carved out of places…

Seed Living – A Great Way to Swap

The idea for SeedLiving was borne on a date night… as designer/ website creator Anna Monique describes…. “Lickity split and with an olive in his mouth he (her husband) blurps out, “why don’t do you do a seedy saturday website?” I sat there stunned. “But someone is probably doing it already.” Its true, there’s Ebay,…

ROOT – A Landscape Architecture Publication

And while I am on the topic of a lot to think about this morning, have you seen this relatively new online publication from the Graduate Landscape Architecture students at the University of Colorado Denver (Go Buffs!)? It’s called ROOT. It is another in this morning’s list of things to go back and read more…

Geranium Wintering– and it’s just not getting better….

Have you ever had a time where you just can’t get it together….life starts coming at you so fast, that there is nothing to do but just take it minute by minute and hope you make all your deadlines….that is where I am right now….and strangely I can’t figure out why.  I had this vision…

Joseph’s Funnies

Joseph over at Greensparrow Gardens has a keen eye for the quirks of gardeners and designers (which he incorporates into his cartoons).  Happily (or embarrassingly) I can relate to far too many of his weekly doodles.  I am so pleased that he took me up on my offer to guest here, and create a unique…

Blogs I like July 2010

Far Out Flora – Matti and Megan’s enthusiasm is infectious and it reaches right out through your computer screen and grabs you.  And I am totally envious of the Workshop where they share their interests with others who want to make terrariums, succulent bowls and plant-y such.  Workshop offers the. coolest. classes. Gathering Spriggs –…

Do You Notice Anything Different Around Here?

I hope not….but there are a few different things…. First — I am using pretty links now!! — that means that the links to my posts are now in a wordy descriptive format rather than just a bunch of gobbeldy gook numbers.  SEO people tell me this is better.  But if you have linked to…
