Marsha has done our logo, cover, and plant illustrations for over 14 years, but she is also a printmaker, selling her detailed etchings in galleries on the Northern California coast and at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Her prints are done in the age-old intaglio style: hand-drawn on copper plates, individually inked and printed on a press, then signed and numbered. Printed on good quality archival paper, each etching is mounted on foam-core board and wrapped in acetate for protection. There is a description of the etching process on the back, along with a Certificate of Authenticity. These plant etchings are limited editions of 100 prints each.

Sterling plants showcasing white, silver and blue; Enliven a low-light spot!

Sterling plants showcasing white, silver and blue....

Blue is a powerful hue that proffers an air of refinement, sensibility and contemplation, while white and silver gleam with an energized lift. Ivory and blue blooms plus silver-laced leaves add cool sophisticated accents, offering welcome relief on a sweltering afternoon. These colors provide niches where the eye can rest, and when intermingled they create a crisp classic aspect. They can also be threaded through hot-themed plantings for a tone down effect!

Enliven a low-light spot...

Many gardeners are on the look out for plants that can tolerate some dappled light or actually flourish in shady recesses. Chosen either for their commanding foliage or enticing flowers, these diverse offerings promise to enliven just about any low-light garden setting.

Happy Digging!
