Excitement was high at the Surprise Lake Middle School groundbreaking ceremony. In the near future, students and teachers will have access to an outdoor classroom right next to a forested wetland! Part of an old ballfield will become a meadow filled with native flowers and habitat islands. School is cool!
It’s an AWESOME day when the back of your minivan looks like this! I’ve been working with the talented @j.u.design on my landscaping and today was shopping day!!! Jennifer and I have worked together on her branding and marketing materials for several years (second image is this year’s mailer featuring the paintings of her sister @katelewisart). It’s so rewarding to work with another designer and share our passions with each other. 💕🌿🌸🍃🌼🌱🌷💕 #creativehappylife#floralpickmeup#landscapedesign#graphicdesign#collab
It seems like yesterday when we welcomed the late flowering, four pedaled, Kousa dogwood to the american landscape as a respite from its cousin the common dogwood (Cornus florida) which had been over specified for decades before. This asian dogwood with it’s heavy flowering habit, attractive exfoliating bark, and plump reddish purple (eatable) berries in the fall, appeared as an exciting, if not exotic option for those landscape architects and designers looking for an alternative to our native species of dogwood.
Unfortunately the Kousa dogwood has become grossly overused, and we now take for granted many of the aforementioned attributes of this great ornamental including it’s resistance to pests and diseases like anthracnose. That said, simply plucking off a single flower and adding it to a bouquet of deep purples and reds (Iris siberica and dahlia) creates an uncommonly rich bouquet.
