Current Obsessions: Last Light of Summer

August 30, 2014
Above: The flowers of your dreams.

Here’s a look at what we’ve had on our radar recently:

  • Prints of things so neatly arranged, by Emily Blincoe. And they’re for sale!
  • “Here one year, gone the next”? A guide to growing echinacea.
  • We’re making this peach and blackberry crumble for Labor Day weekend.
  • Today marks the start of a three-day Japanese Festival at the Missouri Botanical Garden.
  • We’re crazy for this tabletop from Rip + Tan’s latest installment about summer entertaining. Can you guess what the party favors were?
  • For city dwellers with no outdoor garden space: Hanging houseplants are the next best thing.
  • The architects were challenged with creating a nature center that wouldn’t disrupt the landscape at Ohio’s Battelle Darby Creek Metro Park. We approve; what’s your take?
  • According to the New York Times, most urban farmers are women.
  • Floret Flowers talks with designer McKenzie Powell about Pinterest’s impact on the floral industry.
  • With fewer homeowners under 35 years old, is garden retail in trouble?
