It’s June in Colorado and it’s heavenly! Warm, sunny days and cool nights, and everything in my backyard is blooming!
I take all of my product photos in my garden in June and July, and so when you check out the website you get little bits and pieces of my own personal heaven. I thought I’d step back a few paces a give you an idea of what the whole thing looks like.
When we moved into this house 3 years ago in April, the backyard was a brown, dead, overgrown mess. I thought it was all weeds. But then, as little green things began to pop up, I realized that they seemed to belong where they were. So I tore out years’ worth of dead foliage and carted away huge bags of old stems. And in June, a pink and purple explosion happened. It was glorious!
The wonderful worn boulders are the perfect backdrop for my lotion bottles. Soapwort, catmint, sage, columbine, yarrow and a few things I can’t remember the names of tumble down the boulders. Rough, craggy granite contrasts with smooth, silky lotion. Natural setting, natural lotion, natural skin.
