All posts in garden

When I wake up in the morning, I look forward to seeing the garden posts on Instagram from those I follow in the United Kingdom. There is nothing better than a lush and green English garden and no one is a better gardener than Monty Don. I find his photos to be quite soothing in […]

I had the pleasure of visiting potter Frances Palmer at her studio and gardens in Connecticut on a lovely early fall day recently. The leaves were already changing but her dahlias were still in full bloom. Frances is not only throws her own pots but also grows all the flowers that she photographs in them […]

Instagram is the best travel agent and no one has made me want to plan a trip to visit the English countryside more than Mish Tworkowski. The fine jewelry designer of MISH has been posting beautiful bucolic scenes of gardens across England for the part two weeks. I can’t wait to see how this inspiration […]

I have about a 1,000 photos from Charleston to edit and a travel guide to create but until they are ready, I leave you with Easter weekend images from Chateau de Wideville in France. The chateau is owned by Valentino and these photos are from his friends Carlos Souza and Giancarlo Giammetti. While Charleston already […]

As you might remember, I posted about the interior of Westbury House at Old Westbury Gardens recently and now I’m following up with the gardens. They are planted so that there is always something in bloom when you visit. During my visit, the roses were in bursting and I couldn’t get over how beautiful the […]

Gardener’s Delight

06 . 04 . 18

The one good thing that all the recent rain has brought is abundant greenery. Interior designer Robert Couturier posted a few images of his garden in Kent, Connecticut on Instagram and you can see how lush it’s looking these days. I also thought it was a good excuse to post more photos of his beautifully […]

Under the Tuscan Sun

04 . 13 . 18

This week has been crazy and next week is poised to be even crazier. I’m hoping to be able to take a long walk in Central Park now that it’s finally warmed up. Until that happens, I’m going to gaze at photos of this beautiful relaxing garden in Tuscany by Luciano Giubbilei that was featured in […]

High Meadow Farm

I can attest that everyone in New York is ready for spring to arrive. Unfortunately, snow is falling right now and we’re expecting an accumulation of 6-12 inches. This seems like the perfect time to post a beautiful garden I came across on Pinterest. The first photo led me to a Martha Stewart.com profile of Dominique […]

It’s grey and rainy in New York this morning so I feel like it’s the perfect time to post a pretty sun filled garden. The garden in question located in Montecito, California also happens to belong to Oprah and has been recently featured in Veranda. I know quite a few people who live in this […]

I’m obsessed with gardens and this one in the Cotswolds is my new favorite. It belongs to author Ian McEwan and his wife Annalena McAfee who is also a writer and journalist and was just featured on T Magazine.  The couple serendipitously found the property that was going on sale the next day and bought […]

The Chicest Chateau

07 . 08 . 17

Visiting Coco Chanel’s apartment was a bucket list item that actually came true. Perhaps if I wish hard enough, I may find myself at Chateau de Wideville someday. Not exactly sure under what circumstances that might happen but a girl can dream. Chateau de Wideville is the 17th-century home in France owned by Valentino who […]

Every now and then, I like to highlight one of my favorite Instagram accounts you might also enjoy. I don’t know Colin Gray @colin_awg or anything about him except what his bio says, “Purveyor of old buildings, beard enthusiast, enjoying a sabbatical, accomplished cook, currently renovating an old farmhouse in Somerset.” I supposed I could […]
