Home Depot is very conveniently located near Spy Garden and cheaper than the non-big-box nurseries (that are plentiful near Spy Garden). And Martha Stewart likes Home Depot and has product lines there. And Martha Stewart is awesome. Ergo, prior to the St. Louis Homes and Lifestyles Magazine photoshoot I took a couple trips to Home Depot for fall flowers and plants. Here I am:

Home Depot's just so convenient.

The next time I’m in search of plants, I’d like to check out Fahr’s and Passiglia’s: both have been in business since 1950!

Sightseeing. James Rosenquist. 1962 (at the St. Louis Art Museum)

James Rosenquist started his career as a billboard painter, creating advertisements and images of consumer goods on a monumental scale. His early training is evident in this work—vibrantly painted colors, block lettering, and enlarged details of recognizable imagery, in this case a bouquet of roses. Rosenquist drew inspiration for this painting from the back of a tour bus he regularly saw while painting signs in New York City’s Times Square. Sightseeing blurs the line between banal tourism and the supposedly elevated act of viewing art in a gallery or museum. (source St. Louis Art Museum)

Click here for a great article about protecting plants from frost by Maria from Sweet Domesticity. The picture reminds me of Christo and Jeanne Claude.

    Oh my goodness, thank you for introducing me to Christo and Jeanne Claude. I’ve spent most of the morning clicking through that site! I will never look at covering the garden the same again :)

    The person who painted that black labby is truly awesome but then that wonky cow has some serious personality ;). Love the slow descent into autumn and the wrapped trees…SO glad we don’t have to do anything that drastic here! I read about people keeping their fig trees in pots to bring in out of the cold in winter?! Nope…in the ground…staying there…make the best of it figs! Tough love on Serendipity Farm and if you can survive the onslaught of possums, wallabies, chooks, dogs, anything else that wants a bit of you, you are tough enough to live here and you are welcome :)
