Now that Labor Day is behind us and the kids are heading back to school, Katherine Anderson of Marigold and Mint creates a few late summer flower arrangements with three favorite flowers of the season: sunflowers, zinnias, and dahlias.
Our online editor attends a class taught by florist Ariella Chezar and share some of Chezar's tips for creating a natural, full but loose centerpiece. Chezar favors a more relaxed style of arranging that is inspired by the way plants grow in the garden and is a move away from the tightly bundled style of flower arranging.
This magnificent rose garden was created on the site of a family olive grove, which has been owned by the same family for half a century. Located in the San Joaquin Valley, this olive grove was originally developed by the railroads, before recently being transformed into orange groves.
Paula Hayes, the terrarium artist, currently has an exhibit of two of her large-scale works at Lever House, in New York, running until February. She will also has a monograph of her work published in April 2012.
