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!).
