I was out in the garden today after ignoring it for a few weeks. Despite not watering, fertilizing, or weeding, the old standbys are in full bloom. I love the humble, sturdy varieties as much as the fragile short-lived ones because even with the sun beating down mercilessly, they don't let me down.
We have to have sunflowers outside the kitchen window every year. Makes me feel like I am in the south of France.
Echinacea. Getting a little bleached out, but still doing fine.
Coreopsis Moonbeam. I like the buttery shade of the Moonbeam hybrid.
Black-eyed susans are so carefree and bloom forever. Happy end of summer!
I used to be a clothing designer in New York City, then I chucked it all to start a family. I stay busy as an independent designer of kids’ clothing and textiles for various companies, and for my own label “chirp & bloom”. This is my personal blog, where I keep my notes on all things vintage, green, handmade, indie, kid-friendly, and whatever else inspires me to keep evolving. Just for fun, I feature artisans I discover at indie craft shows and share sewing and other DIY projects through tutorials. Thanks for visiting!
