Hello Moxie and Billy Buttons

This is the tiniest little  ‘blogs I like’ post .  I have a new favorite reading place– it’s Hello Moxie.   Reading Denise’s posts is like talking to a girlfriend about all the things I like to talk about (except for gardens).   It’s books, pop culture, fashion, interesting newsy things, ideas, and generally a little bit of what I like to discuss with my favorite people (again, if I were forced to eliminate plants and gardens and design from my topics list).

Denise (who is also a photographer) recently discovered the Seussical Craspedia flowers at her farmers market, is obsessed with them, and her picture (above) has passed that little obsession along to me.   It’s a tender annual and best for zones 9 – 11, but I think I might give it a try from seed next year.  I can really see these in my garden and home.

Seeds can be purchased through Harris Seeds.

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.
