Innovative Garden Ideas From Sonoma

Hi all,

I can’t seem to maintain any sort of posting schedule since moving.  I feel stretched in too many directions.  I did finally upload a bunch of pictures from my phone.  I’ll try to translate them into some more regular posts!

I’ve spent quite a bit of time in Sonoma since moving.  There is a lovely complex there called Cornerstone, which has some really beautiful, creative stores and galleries.  It also has a wine tasting room (of course!)  It  has show gardens from various landscape architects.  Definitely worth the trip, if you’re ever in the area. 

Here are some of the show gardens.  I wish I’d noted the landscape architects and artists, but I’m afraid I didn’t

I am madly in love with Artefact Design and Salvage.  Here is a planter made from a Strangler vine:

and more fun stuff from Artefact.  They have TONS of things.  Some have been made into finished pieces; both furniture and art pieces and some are raw materials.  Love this place!
