I'd definitely hang around outside more frequently if my garden had these. Oh how I'd love to chill in my garden with a book on my lap desk.

That outdoor bean bag is cool.. Wish i could have of that... Thank you so much for sharing this in here...


My husband attached a milk crate to the back rack of my bike. Though I only transport passive goods, would your dog stay in it, do you think? Does make the bike a trifle top heavy, though, so a bit wobbly. How much does your dog weigh? Carrying things in the front is actually more stable, in my experience.

Hi Lauren,
I'd probably want to sit in those big black chairs before buying them too - comfort no doubt depends on the depth of the cushions you use on them...I think I really do need that yellow wheeled bike too - with a basket on the front and maybe a little side car for my dog???

Thanks for putting up such a lovely post.CB2 indeed have one of the finest collection of furniture around the globe. Their reasonable prices and excellent deals is definitely icing on the cake I would say.
The pictures are truly amazing.Well done.

I love these new red bean bags! I only wish that I could 'do' red in my garden! I'm also in total agreement about black furniture in the garden, it looks so grounded. Do you think these chairs are comfy? I wish there was a CB2 showroom in Portland so that I could try these out as I might be inclined to buy them for myself!
Val, you NEED that yellow wheeled bike, absolutely!!!

New Book: Petal & Twig

  • Petal & Twig Made The New York Times!
    From Anne Raver's review: "Valerie Easton, a Seattle-based garden writer, discusses the art of growing and arranging cut flowers in “Petal and Twig: Seasonal Bouquets With Blossoms, Branches and Grasses From Your Garden” (Sasquatch Books; $16.95). Written as an informal diary, with photographs of arrangements from her own garden, and tips on cutting and keeping flowers fresh, the book inspires ideas not only on what to grow but on how to combine (or not) those beauties inside. See review here: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/03/29/garden/new-books-on-growing-and-arranging-flowers.html?scp=1&sq=petal%20&%20twig%20anne%20raver&st=cse
  • The first reviews on the new book are in! From Publisher's Weekly:
  • "Open your eyes and keep it simple: those are two lessons Easton passes on from her own 40 years in the garden. When selecting and arranging flowers for bouquets, you needn’t spend a bundle buying a bundle of imported flowers.....The result will be unique, local, imaginative, and inexpensive. Color photos throughout illustrate and inspire."

In the News

  • Montreal Blogger Reviews "A Pattern Garden"
    I was so pleased to find that "A Pattern Garden" is still being reviewed...check out Allan Becker's generous review on his Garden Guru blog.. I felt like Allan really understood what I was working towards in that book....he writes...."There is a delightful abstract quality to this publication. In it, the author takes good garden design to a higher, more spiritual level. Instead of discussing the aesthetic and scientific elements of design, as so many traditional garden design books do, she focuses on the role played in garden design by archetypal ideas - a.k.a. patterns - that reference the longings of human beings. These pleasure and comfort-rooted ideas are those that inspire designers to create gardens that are satisfying beyond their beauty." see more at http://allanbecker-gardenguru.squarespace.com/journal/valerie-easton
