Every day is Earth Day when you surround yourself with plants.
In my Mediaplanet article, “Queer Eye” designer Bobby Berk, who calls plants, “an investment to your well-being,” shares his home gardening tips and outdoor living tips.
Here’s an excerpt from the article:
Berk advised planning before starting a garden. “Do your research and you’ll be good to grow.” He said to consider location, the type of plant you use, and good soil.
“You really have to pay attention to how the sun moves throughout the entire day and choose a location that gets at least six hours,” Berk said. “Using proper soil is also so important. An in-ground garden needs different soil than a container garden, and succulents and cacti have their own special soil needs, too.”
Earl McCoy at Penny Photographics has noticed couples, especially brides, are getting more comfortable and less formal within their respective weddings.
“Brides are choosing comfortable shoes over high heels and not just wearing them for the dancing afterward, but wearing them throughout the day,” he says. “They want to be comfortable and most of them know that wearing heels for 12+ hours would be exhausting on their feet.”
He says many brides, instead of veils, are choosing simple headpieces or nothing at all, explaining, “This allows for more movement and freedom to hug, dance and move around without worry.”
