No need to grab your passport or to even pack a suitcase when you use travel as your inspiration in your garden. A garden that reflects international sensibilities is more about the places you have been and the signature design styles of those places that remind you perhaps of a special time in your life.
It’s that time of year again, when the nights become cooler and the hazy, hot and humid days are long gone. The fresh crisp air kicks me back into action and reminds me there is work to be done in the garden.
I have come to believe that the career of a gardener should begin and end the same way: with containers. My grandmother taught me this early on when I first expressed interest in her garden. I was just a little boy when she gave me a small terra cotta container as an introduction to the world of gardening.
I had complete autonomy over my container, and also complete responsibility.
It's that time of year again: Days are longer, the weather is warmer and mother earth calls us to enjoy the splendor of the great outdoors. Party time!
I’m no stranger to throwing great parties, or so I’m told. When I was growing up, just about anything, from a drop of rain to a major holiday, was reason enough for my parents to entertain. My favorites were always our summer pool parties.
