Ariella at Chalk Hill Clematis Farm

Thursday, June 26th, 2014

ariella.2Ariella Chezar hosted a workshop at Chalk Hill Clematis Farm, where attendees soaked up the designer’s signature floral style and a little California sun.

Relying on local and seasonal blooms, Ariella’s floral arrangements are best described as wild, romantic masterpieces, and she’s able to make something as simple as fruit-bearing branches look like a Dutch still-life painting. The eight attendees travelled from near and far in hopes of capturing a bit of Ariella’s artistic magic during the master class.

martha stewart.flowermag.13“I’ve been gardening since I’ve been walking. Dad put me in the garden when I was three years old and taught me what was a weed and what was not a weed.  Of six kids I was the one with the green thumb.  I would do it for hours and hours.

I absolutely loved it. I have always been an avid gardener.” explains Stewart of her horticultural origins.

Monet’s Giverny in NYC

Tuesday, January 15th, 2013

For much of this past year, visitors to the New York Botanical Garden have been treated to a transcendent experience.  In a singularly ambitious exhibition, the NYBG re-created the Impressionist’s famous French garden in exquisite detail… filling the conservatory courtyard ponds with the same varieties of water lilies that Monet grew and immortalized in his paintings.

Changed out seasonally, the exhibit included all of Monet’s favorites: irises, poppies, nasturtiums, roses, delphinium, and foxgloves.
