Gardens in Bloom: October

Posted on: November 1st, 2012 by Adele No Comments

One of our favorite blooms from the garden right now is Ageratina altissima — which is more commonly known as White Snakeroot.  Its tiny, delicate white blooms are in full force and are attracting loads of butterflies…

Thanks to our head gardener and horticulturist, Amy Jones, for sharing (and for keeping this plant so happy!).

Would you consider a Halloween wedding?   October 31st falls on a Friday night in 2014, so if you’re newly engaged and considering it…   just saying.

Here’s a little inspiration for you, via our Pinterest.  One of these weddings actually was the wedding I fell in love with aesthetically, and ended up using as inspiration for my own wedding decór (which took place  nowhere near Halloween!).

If you have friends in California, we hope you’ll forward Michael Pollan’s recent article in the NYT Magazine to them.

“California’s Proposition 37, which would require that genetically modified (G.M.) foods carry a label, has the potential … to change the politics of food not just in California but nationally too.”

Kristen and Andrew were married on a lovely day in June.  More recently, their wedding was featured on Elizabeth Anne Designs & photographer Taylor Lord’s blog.  We’re finally getting to this beauty, but it was certainly worth the wait!

I couldn’t help myself; I found it nearly impossible to narrow it down to a few choice images from this sweet vintage-inspired wedding, so I’ve included a TON.  The bow tie, the bridesmaids’ floral dresses, super-sweet florals, scrumptious looking food, and — most of all — the glowing & delightfully happy couple!
