Garden Party

irises and salvia by rochelle greayer at

Despite the rain, I am busy readying my home and garden to welcome friends and family for a rocking garden/ barn party this evening.

It is my birthday next week, so we are celebrating.  Are you hosting any garden parties this summer?  I wrote over on Apartment Therapy earlier this week about tips to help you get your garden ready….and some lovely readers offered even more (and better) ideas too.  Check it out.  And feel free to add your tips here or there too.

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.

    My birthday is next week as well – the 16th is my 40th. It was raining here in Virginia for days, but the skies cleared for a nice evening this Saturday so I had friends over to celebrate early. I like to make a chili or something that can be prepped ahead of time so I can enjoy my party too!
    Happy Birthday!

    I had a garden party yesterday. The weather was perfect, the garden is at it’s peak, and a good time was had by all.
