Photographs taken of flowers from the garden last spring

With travel placed on hold during the middle of winter, I took to designing the perfect garden with a bit of paper and pencil on a cold and windy afternoon. My love of flowers took over as I imagined what areas around the house would look like if I brought the South of France to Heath. I could see the garden in full-swing this summer, while looking through the deck doors filled with old-fashioned slub roses, potted camellias, a bit of night blooming jasmine and scented geraniums dotted around for an intensely fragrant affect.

Orange and red ranunculus have been ordered with additional hydrangeas to go around the front porch and deck to keep deer from noshing all season long.I’ve enjoyed creating this fragrant landscape, and will continue to draft and edit for the rest of summer into fall so, that I may carry this idea into the following year.

Looking forward to warmer weather,

Passion for Flowers

Early dawns, long days, late sunsets and short nights ….. welcome to the beginning of summer 2020. Given the challenging moment we find ourselves living in, it’s important to experience the beauty of nature in order to stay centered. Today my dearest friend Kiwi said she’s been buying flowers lately to place throughout her home to stay uplifted, as we travel this arduous road to a new normal. I too have taken to scouring farmers markets for flowers I cannot harvest at Heath, but enjoyed the blooms above from our garden.

Here’s to bringing beauty to our lives!!!
