‘Tis the season for an abundance of sparkle and shine and my favorite way to do this is with a subtle embellishment. Jewels, beading, bows—a little touch makes a big statement. And I love that I’m finding so many non-black items. While black is always chic, try mixing it up this season with navy, grays and whites.
Choosing music for your wedding should be one of the planning stage’s more enjoyable decisions, and it should be done together as a couple. While selecting music to celebrate your big day can be overwhelming (like everything else about the wedding), it can be simplified if you separate the decisions into ‘categories.’ There is appropriate music for religious ceremonies, as well as secular and ethnic weddings.
Our gardening romance with the most exotic and tropical-looking South African plants has very deep roots. Some 250 years ago, Scottish botanist Francis Masson was the first of the global plant explorers from the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, to study these plants. Masson brought to horticulture more than 400 species of South African plants such as the king protea, geranium, cineraria, calla lily, bird of paradise, red-hot-poker, Agapanthus and Amaryllis belladonna. He deserves many thanks for his contributions to our garden world!

As a lifelong garden-lover and fan of imaginative landscape design, I have a particular fondness of water gardens. I’ve been studying the roots of regional garden design concepts, and I’ve been fortunate to have seen many of the world’s finest examples, including the gardens of Ryoan-ji, the serene dry sea of neatly raked gravel in Japan; the damp Zen moss gardens in Kyoto; the formal and ornate fountains of the French gardens of the Palais du Versailles; the relaxed lakeside English landscapes designed by Capability Brown; Villa d’Este, the fabulous fountain garden near Rome; and Generalife in Granada, Spain. My professional interest in the ancient four-part garden style has only increased after seeing the beautifully restored courtyard gardens in Granada last spring. You will find pictures of these famous and elegant gardens, with their linear canals and flowing fountains, in every book on the history of landscape design.
