Current Obsessions: Height of the Season

July 5, 2014
The subtlest shad of rose.
Above: The subtlest shad of rose.

Take a look at what’s on our radar this week:

  • We love this linen hold-all for hauling fresh loot from the farmer’s market.
  • Washington, D.C. has a handful of off-the-grid (and away-from-the-tourists) gardens. Who knew? We’re eager to visit the Franciscan Monastery Gardens.
  • Anna Jones’s new book, A Modern Way to Eat, is packed with photographs by Brian Ferry and contemporary recipes for the herbivore.
  • Designer outdoor pots in reverse ombré color combinations.
  • A UK roundup of the 10 best roses to grow.
  • 5 DIY bird feeders, to tempt your avian neighbors to visit your backyard.
  • We’re enchanted by the Instagram feed of Camille Storch (@waywardspark), who lives in a cabin in rural Oregon. Her photos of berries from the USDA National Clonal Germplasm Repository, in Corvallis, OR, have us salivating.
  • Sourcing flowers grown locally and sustainably can be a challenge. Debra Prinzing, author of Slow Flowers and The 50 Mile Bouquet, has launched a one-stop directory for American-grown flowers.
  • If you want to see your garden, outdoor shed, or outdoor living space on Gardenista, the deadline to enter the 2014 Considered Design Awards is this Monday. What are you waiting for? Enter here.
