Current Obsessions: Afternoon Delight


Current Obsessions: Afternoon Delight

May 21, 2016

From a designer’s LA garden to tips for thriving herbs, here’s what we’ve been inspired by this week.


Above: If you find yourself in or around Seattle this weekend, join the Garden Conservancy this evening for Garden & Grapes with Ciscoe Morris.  There will a wine tasting featuring local vineyards, hors d’oeuvres, and a silent auction, all in good company with the certified arborist and gardener. Details here.

Sonadora-CIRCLE PLANT HOLDER-gardenista-obsessions

Above: Currently coveting: Sonadora’s Circle Planters that offer a new twist on the classic mid-century plant holder.

  • With 17 gardens on display, who will win this year’s Chelsea Flower Show?
  • Oakland-based Edyn has unveiled its new wireless water valve that lets users automatically irrigate their gardens.

Above: We’ve been followers of the quite understated designs of Lan Jaenicke for years, so naturally we were thrilled to learn the designer had launched her open studio and garden in Los Angeles. We’ll soon be visiting the space, described as “a place to be inspired by new discoveries or to simply take refuge in quietude from the bustling day.” Photo courtesy of Lan Jaenicke.

Instagram Inspiration


Above: We first learned of Warren Keller from our friends at The Horticult. Now we’re avid followers of his endless ideas and tips for thriving succulents (@warrensgarden).
