A Garden Bed Grows Up: The Evolution of a Flower Border

I t all started with some leftover manure. Over three years ago, I needed to do something with the remaining composted manure from a gardening project before winter came. Our house is built into a hill. The backyard is lower, making the back deck a half-story above ground level. The previous owners had stuffed some shrubs into a skinny little border along the back, which I had tidied up. But when my daughter created a potager on the south side of the house that extended beyond the deck, it...

A colorful, backyard wedding in Santa Barbara on a super reasonable budget

Real talk: as most of our California pals know, weddings in Santa Barbara + this area in general do not come without sticker shock. They just don’t! It’s pretty unheard of for a couple to pull off an evening SoCal wedding as stunning as this with 120 guests for a budget of $35K (all the way down to the groom’s shoes), which is why we had to grill our talented bride on how they made it happen. (It’s kinda our job, you know?) Peruse the images by Cara Robbins Studio throughout for deets! Caroli...

(Welcome to Comic Book Drive-In, a series where comic and movie fans Jazmine Joyner and Rosie Knight recommend brand new, ongoing, and completed comic book series that tie into classic films and new releases.)

Sweet Spring

I love ornamental onions. I love that they come in so many different sizes and colors. I love that even after their flowers fade most of them hold their shape, making beautiful decorations.

Here are some of the ornamental onions (or Alliums, as they are known in the horticultural world) you will see in the gardens at Blithewold. ...

Colorful California Wedding at Dawn Ranch :: Megan & Evan

So we’re dusting off our favorites… Photography by Christina McNeill. Color was second only to love on Megan and Evan’s wedding day! As the bride says, for her, color “exudes happiness” so there was plenty of it at their celebration.

Cost of Wedding Bouquets | Budget Breakdown

It’s been four years since we posted our Cost of Wedding Bouquets article, and because it’s been shared and saved so often since then, we thought we’d refresh it with some new designs and photos thanks to Amanda Vidmar and Christina McNeill.  When it comes to wedding expenses, sometimes it’s hard to understand just why a particular element costs what it does, or why there’s such a range in rates. Something as seemingly simple as cake can cost anywhere from $1.50 to $12.00 a slice! Well, today we...

New Peonies! Lovely And Mysterious

T wo and a half years ago I acquired a couple of peonies through a members-only sale of my local chapter of the North American Rock Garden Society (NARGS). You may not realize this, but most rock gardeners get interested in alpine plants after years of gardening experience. They are all plant geeks and expert (or at least, better than average) at starting plants from seed, because the best alpine plants aren’t offered by the local garden center and NARGS has an awesome seed exchange. So even if...

About Thai Teas and Tea in Thailand

I presented about Thai teas at an unusual type of expat meet-up event in Bangkok a month ago,  described here , and I just realized that I’ve never discussed Thai teas here on TChing. I’ve been living in Bangkok for nine years now–the time just flies–and blogging about tea for three years.  I was drinking loose tea for longer than that previously, with Thai oolongs as one cause for getting further into tea.  The full story of Thai tea is too much to cover but here goes a start on it.
