This one acre, family owned botanical garden and cactarium in Palm Springs is filled with 3000 varieties of desert plants. I would love to visit on my next trip to the States.

I’ve seen a few photographers working with this theme lately, there’s something quite poetic about it.

Billy Kidd uses dramatic colours.

Amy Merrick is a florist and stylist I have long admired.

The way she plays with shape and texture really blows me away and I especially like her use of fruit and berries.

There’s a romanticism to her work and life that is very intriguing.

Check out her blog here.
