Garden reading: Judy Kameon’s Gardens are for Living

gardens are for living

I’ve been a huge fan of Judy Kameon and her dramatic, laid back, low maintenance gardens and outdoor living spaces for years. I’ve also been on a simplicity kick, trying very hard to pare down and own less, but when I saw that her book had gone on sale I had to order it. This is the way you want to garden – and live.

Succulents and organic modern ceramics

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted. Around here, summer is not gardening season, it’s survival season! Especially this summer with the terrible drought we are having. With fall in sight I’m starting to think about my garden again but I’m still more than a month away from wanting to plant anything in the ground. So for now I’ll get my gardening fix another way.

Spotted at Sunset Magazine’s Celebration Weekend, these earthy organic containers are perfect for late summer and will take you right into fall and winter. You can mix just about any combination of pots, vases, and objects you can find. If you are mixing in flowers, just restrict the palette. Deep burgundies and blacks look so cool in this setting.
