This was the first summer in a long time where I felt like I actually got to experience SUMMER! I just got back from 10 days in the south of France with friends and it was amazing! September always feels like the start of a new year and I am really looking forward to it.

More photos from California. So many plants, I miss that here in Paris..
My recent trip to California for the winter was exactly what I needed, some much needed SUN!
I miss my community of amazing friends there, their enthusiasm and energy is infectious and inspiring, and I left feeling complete again. As always it’s hard to return to the cold and grey, even if in a beautiful city like Paris.
I have so much to share from California so we will be back tracking a bit here and there but all good things worth sharing I think!

I’m very excited that this weekend at 0fr, Cecile Daladier who I’ve posted about before will be selling some plants and pots along her husband Nicolas Soulier, who will be speaking about his powerful book “Reconquering the Streets” and talking about Japanese potted gardens. Plus there will be an exhibition of photos for the launch of new issue of The Plant Journal by Daisuke Hamada. Plus an after party at Candelaria, who has a new site made by David. This is an 0fr event not to be missed!
18h15-19h: discussion autour du livre “Reconquérir les rues” en présence de l’auteur, l’architecte urbaniste Nicolas Soulier, et focus sur les jardins de pots au Japon avec projection des photos de Daisuke Hamada pour The Plant Journal.
21h15: soirée à la Candelaria
Tout le week-end: pop-up store de boutures et jardinières Assaï. Apportez votre pique-nique, terrasse 0fr végétalisée pour l’occasion.
I love the work of artist Fumiko Imano. I just found a link to her blog, and was reminded of how much I love the playful spirit of her work. It looks like she has a cool exhibit up in Singapore right now. I was so sad I just missed her show with Kotori Kawashima in Tokyo by a couple days when I was there.
