Weekend Things

baby cage instead of gardens

“A baby suspended in a wire cage attached to the outside of a high tenement block window. The cages were distributed to members of the Chelsea Baby Club in London who have no gardens”  – 1937  via retronaut

This picture caught my eye (you can’t tell me it didn’t catch yours too)….When I lived in London, I had an acutual garden that was actually about this big and my girl was actually about this size at the time….but thankfully mine had stone walls and was ground level.  Can you imagine?

Speaking of baby stuff, I have spent the day (actually the last many weeks) preparing and clearing out our attic, basement and barn in preparation for stocking at a booth at the annual Flea Market in my town.   The truck is loaded and I am ready to go.  If you are in the area….maybe you want a baby seat or two? or perhaps something from a selection of lamps…an old serger sewing machine?  maybe a rocking horse?  an old drawing board?….see you there tomorrow morning (hoping for good weather!).

Here are a few links for your weekend reading!

Did you like the 5 seeds to plant now post?  Well, this week over at Apartment Therapy I came up with 5 more.

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.
