Not that summer is over I am finally sorting through photos from my “Gardening Roadtrip” back in May. I had the great pleasure of visiting the Oak Spring Garden Foundation in Upperville, VA. The Foundation is not open to the public (at the moment), but I was lucky enough to receive an invitation to join a small private tour group. We spent the majority of our tour inside Bunny Mellon’s spectacular personal garden library. It is an incredible collection, and if you’re interested in learning more about it you can visit the Library page online. Photos were not permitted inside the collection, but here are some nice shots of the property and gardens.
Flower pot magic on my porch this summer...a monarch caterpillar transforming into a chrysalis.
The anatomy of a diecutting job. When I have odd-sized scraps and remnants of larger sheets of paper stock, I save them to diecutting for future business cards. It's a great way to reduce waste, and fun to switch gears from letterpress printing to diecutting.
