The Sweet Scent of Honeysuckle

We love this time of year when the sweet scent of honeysuckle wafts into our office from the open window which overlooks the garden next door.  It’s no wonder that this plant is a favorite for humming birds, butterflies and night moths with it’s delicious honey fragrance and pretty open-mouthed flowers.  Praised by poets like Robert Frost and Philip Freneau, the honeysuckle symbolizes love and devoted affection and was thought to have grown in the Garden of Eden.  We hope these honeysuckle accents capture your heart, too!

Sitting Pretty!

One of the big trends to come out of Maison & Objet in Paris this winter was the extension of living space to include the outdoors.  Based on a recent study, “the garden is now the second most important room in the house, after the living room and before the kitchen.”

We have to agree given that we spend most of our weekends from Memorial Day to Labor Day (and most often into the fall) tending to our flower beds and entertaining on our terrace.  And after a day’s work planting, pruning and weeding, there is nothing so relaxing as a glass of chilled white wine sitting under the old linden tree on our garden bench.  May you enjoy the fruits of your labor sitting pretty on one of these!
