Adonis & Orchid

People tell me that being a horticulturist isn’t cool and I tell them to take one look at Juliet rose, a flame lily or a kokia cookei. How can you not be moved by such fragile beauty? Was it “cool” to discover that the Gibraltar Campion wasn’t extinct as we feared and now I get to watch the spectacular florescence of them in my own backyard? I think so. What I love about flowers is that they are distinctively delicate and require love, devotion and light to blossom into the most magnificent versions of themselves. Could the same not be said of all of us? Of my beloved dog Orchid?

My perfect date would be to finally share the loveseat in my flower garden modelled after Jardin Majorelle in Morocco and to just sit, hold hands and stare in wonder at the splendor that surrounds us while Orchid lounges in your favorite spot by the turquoise jade vines.
