It's always been a secret dream of mine to have a beautiful garden and have it featured in a magazine. My garden is a work in progress, with two toddlers, a baby on the way and a full-time job there's not a lot of extra time for gardening. I was shocked when GardenWise Magazine called and said they wanted to feature my garden in their magazine. I was so excited! I only started to freak out about a week before they arrived - my garden is not my dream garden...yet. We did the shoot in May, plants in Vancouver weren't exactly thriving - the weather has been horrible here for a while. Knowing that Heather Cameron would be on site to style the shoot made me feel much better! She's an incredible talent...check out her blog A Day in the Country. They delivered the magazine to me today, it's on stands now.
This is a photo from my camera on shoot day...Master B was at daycare, so Miss Z was my little helper. When we moved into our house two years ago we tore out the entire garden, it wasn't really a garden it was a bunch of filler. We started from scratch, it's been a fun and creative process that never seems to end. I'm happy that both of our kids love being in the garden, I can't wait til I can teach them how to pull weeds!
My favourite plant in our garden is the Himalayan Blue Poppy, isn't she a beauty?
