My favorite Fava bean that got away (I ate them all). With beautiful Crimson flowers this variety is more common in Britain than here stateside. I haven't found seed for last couple of years. The plants are short and stout and incredibly productive. #horticolorist #MyROYGBIVworld #THE100DAYPROJECT

Tuesday morning - bright and strong and richly colored. Welcome week after the fully savored long weekend. The Humboldt lilies (Lilium humboldtii) are also in bloom in the lower canyons near me - with many pendant buds on tall, sturdy stems thickening as you venture higher up the trails. It has been, and looks to continue to be, a good year for bulbs! This one is named for the famed scientist, adventurer, thinker Alexander Von Humboldt. Do you ever wonder how a plant got its name? Sometimes it's clearly due to color or shape or habit, but sometimes - it's hard to know. This week on Cultivating Place I'm joined by author Andrea Wulf who talks with us about her adventure exploring and following threads for herself about how certain plants came to be named, the people who named them and for whom they were named and the larger cultural, political, personal and environmental stories behind them. Her most recent work is The Invention of Nature - Alexander Humboldt's New World. To listen to our conversation this coming Thursday June 2, follow links in bio. Happy Tuesday - it's a new work week. Enjoy. Oh - and Cultivating Place is now available as a free podcast on iTunes. #cultivatingplace #neverstoplearning #gardenstories #plantnames #alexandervonhumboldt #andreawulf #cultivatingplacepodcast #botany #horticulturalhistory #gardenhistory #itsthelittlethings #followsflowers #growwhatyoulove #gratitude #beautyiseverywhere #theartofslowliving
