The Boston Flower Show

This has been our 3rd year participating in the window box displays at The annual Boston Flower Show. We have so much fun designing and creating our display. One of my favorite parts about participating is the excitement in the air as everyone is working incredibly hard setting up their stunning displays.

This year the theme was 'Spring Savor,' we were asked to create displays that included edibles mixed in with non-edible plants. As an interior-plantscaping company we have tried to always showcase a bit of what we do! Last year we used tropical plants and so this year we decided to use succulents!! But did you know ... that some succulents are edible?! Aloe, stonecrops (sedum), and agave are just a few that come to mind. Here's a great website that provides more information: Edible Landscape Design.

In case you missed attending the Boston Flower Show here are some pictures that I took on a quite morning before the show had opened to the public!

2018 Pantone Color of the Year!

2018 Ultra Violet Pantone_Harding Botanicals

"A dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade, PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future.

Complex and contemplative, Ultra Violet suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the discoveries beyond where we are now. The vast and limitless night sky is symbolic of what is possible and continues to inspire the desire to pursue a world beyond our own.

Enigmatic purples have also long been symbolic of counterculture, unconventionality, and artistic brilliance. Musical icons Prince, David Bowie, and Jimi Hendrix brought shades of Ultra Violet to the forefront of western pop culture as personal expressions of individuality. Nuanced and full of emotion, the depth of PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet symbolizes experimentation and non-conformity, spurring individuals to imagine their unique mark on the world, and push boundaries through creative outlets.

Historically, there has been a mystical or spiritual quality attached to Ultra Violet. The color is often associated with mindfulness practices, which offer a higher ground to those seeking refuge from today’s over-stimulated world. The use of purple-toned lighting in meditation spaces and other gathering places energizes the communities that gather there and inspire connection." - Pantone
