Weekend Things

My MIL and FIL arrive from CA tonight, so this mothers day weekend will be especially mother-ly.   I am particularly grateful for this visit as it will allow me to depart for London next week knowing that my family will not have to endure the stress of a missing mom, chauffeur, chef, laundress, dog walker, chicken feeder, etc. etc.  I’m looking forward to an opportunity to focus on working and making a trip that revolves almost universally around gardens.   But before all that, its mother’s day and the weekend….I hope you all have a wonderful weekend with your mothers or those who you mother (or both).   Until Monday….

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.

    I find adirondacks too slung back for comfort, but check these out designed by Zaha Hadid, pretty cool looking lounge seating. Have a great trip to Chelsea!
