Summer in Cleveland is special to me. It’s a lush place to grow plants, and I love the hot, humid weather. It reminds me of the best tropical vacations, and the quiet American countryside both at once.
Kaila is an artist and paints beautiful floral watercolors. She created her garden as a place to cultivate her subject matter, and a wonderful spot to interact with her 2 children.
As her garden grew, she ended up with such an abundance of flowers, she began to offer a local flower delivery subscription service. When I ordered one of her extra bouquets, I was treated to an overflowing vase of zinnias, roses, fox gloves, her last sweet pea of the season, and so many others I can’t recall all of the names.
It was such a special experience to get to take these images of her and the kids enjoying the everything that had grown in the area. I was inspired to see how much beauty and joy can come from something as simple as placing tiny seeds in the ground.
Do you garden? My interest is piqued, and I’m excited to try my hand at planting some poppy seeds I ordered online!
