Autumnal Mums

It’s that time of year again! I bought purple mums to greet our guests at a wonderful little soirĂ©e we threw at the studio a couple of weekends back. The stunning marmalade-colored mums were given to us that night by our favorite friends Chris+Albert as a host gift. 

We mixed and sipped and mingled and then all headed to Longwood Gardens to see my friend’s brilliant light and sound installation “Nightscape”. It’s gotten incredible press and is only up for a few more weeks- a Must See!  More info: http://longwoodgardens.org/nightscape

I bought these tomato plants the day before Mother’s Day last May at a flower market festival. We’ve had a lot of fun nurturing them all summer.
