More updates from the Bay Area, this one from occasional AGO photographer and contributor MB Maher. I’ll let him tell this adventure in his own words:
“Shirley Watts messaged me to keep my Wednesday evening open. And per her instructions, I found myself on the 4.09 caltrain to Palo Alto, getting off at Stanford, [...]
What to make of this impulse to create gardens? Most of my ruminations are done leaning on a shovel, or moving a pot inches to the left and wondering why in the world it matters. One of the few constants throughout my life has been making gardens with the single-mindedness of the bowerbird making his [...]
On the Xericworld forum you can expect to find some of the most technical discussions around on desert plants, but photos of a fashion shoot among aloes and agaves? That was a surprise.
From the March 2012 issue of You Inspire. Photographer Zoltan Tombor, model Nicole Trunfio
We move too quickly to keep up. There is much to say about the team at Organic Mechanics, photos to share of a vast and wine-fueled dinner at the Conservatory of Flowers, stories to tell of the city itself as the county clerk swings wide the doors at the marriage office, but for the [...]

Seedpods of Asclepias physocarpa transformed into garden lanterns.
Another “light painting” by photographer MB Maher.
The incomparable Herb Ritts and Titian were also at the Getty Center in Los Angeles, and some of Marie Antoinette’s hand-me-down furniture too. I think it can be safely said that gardeners are connoisseurs of the perfect moment, and last Sunday was that most exquisite of summer days, not too hot, just senusally warm and [...]
