Excuse Me…..

I had intended this post for sometime next week….but it seems it just needs to come a bit early.   I am going be on a little hiatus until the end of the month (November).  Don’t worry,  I will be right back here with renewed vigor on December 1st.  I am already looking forward to returning.

I am going to do a little traveling, a little family time, a little getting over illness and a lot of writing — of the novel sort.    I have a few posts that I have been working on, but as my mind has been elsewhere they are not complete — so I’m going to finish them all up this weekend, I hope, and make them post every few days or so in my absence — so there will still be some good reasons to come here and check out what is new, but I won’t actually be ‘here’  – until December. See you then — Happy Thanksgiving!  -R

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
