Flower District NYC

The Flower District in NYC never gets old. On a daily basis you can find row after row of beautiful fresh-cut flowers, potted plants, driftwood, cotton stalks, evergreen garland, flowering vegetables (like the artichokes pictured above!), branches with fall-colored leaves, branches with no leaves, cactuses (cacti-?), and on and on it goes. You name it--all lined up. And ALL will find a home. This is part of what amazes me about the city: there are so many people in NYC, it seems as though none of this volume goes to waste. And another thing I noticed: I was not the only one taking pictures. So beautiful!
The flower above is featured in our 2019 calendar and in our new note cards as seen below :)

House Beautiful and Heather Chadduck Interiors and Decoration
My friend, Heather Chadduck Hillegas, was featured in this month's issue of House Beautiful!
She is an interior designer and textile designer, and her work is amazing. If you haven't already, pick up the October 2018 issue (before it's too late!) or check out the article online.

Sky view from above

Flying in an airplane is certainly more commonplace than it used to be, but the concept still amazes me every time I fly. As a result, I always look out the window (my preferred seat is next to a window). On this particular flight, the sky was especially gorgeous, with big, pronounced clouds, and sunny spots alongside darker ones. I could not stop taking pictures--this one is one of my favorites.

2019 Year in Bloom
Our 2019 calendars are in, and we are so excited with how they turned out! This year's theme is Flowers of the South Pacific, and with so many beautiful flowers in that part of the world, it was hard to narrow it down. (Maybe a future year will be part 2...) We hope you'll love it!

Buddha's hand

There are definitely some bizarre creations of nature out there, and in my opinion this is one of them. Having never seen this before, of course I had to stop and take a picture when I happened upon it in the market the other day. "Buddha's hand" fruit. There was only the one. What on earth does one do with one of these? I must investigate...

Peppers at the Raleigh Farmers Market

While at the Raleigh Farmers Market the other day, I spied this row of very colorful peppers. Peppers always make for good photos, and these did not disappoint! The rich, warm Fall colors are right on cue as well.
