I met these guys last week when they were installing a green wall at OzHarvest‘s new Sydney warehouse/ office. I love their philosophy for urban gardens – that they should be both edible and medicinal, along with bountiful and beautiful. Check out some of their work below at Kitchen by Mike and Three Blue Ducks. They’ve also just launched their website so be sure to check it out here.

One of the first gardens I visited on my recent trip to Paris, the Promenade Plantée runs 4.7 km between Opera Bastille and the bois de Vincennes. It’s built on an old railway line reminiscent of New York’s High Line. It’s a tranquil trail with an amazing rose collection and beautiful views down Parisian boulevards.

Blossom Talent represents artists, photographers, illustrators and stylists of the botanical persuasion. Such a good idea. Check out some of their roster.

Sambo and I were in Hvar, Croatia not so long ago for the beautiful wedding of Michelle & Dan. We so enjoyed the hospitality of the lovely couple along with their family and friends, big thanks for having us.

While there we also managed a bit of adventuring, exploring the little islands by boat as well as taking a cute convertible (of course) to go further inland. The island was bursting with life, thyme growing wild under our feet, pomegranates and figs picked freely from the side of the street, flowering fennel towering above us, the sweet scent of rosemary filling the air and gnarled old olive trees scattered everywhere. Picking wild things straight from the land makes for a perfect summer.
