I’m back in Merida again, continuing the adventure that is designing a mini-paradise for a Jorge Pardo Sculpture studio project! Those of you who have been reading this blog for a while know how exciting this is for me, and what an amazing learning experience … I’ve been stretching parts of my hort-brain that have only been used to thinking one way – dry dry dry. Well, here in the Yucatan, there is ALOT of wet, and that has to be accounted for! What an opportunity! I love being able to responsibly plant the thirsty beauties!
I’m staying in a lovely little place – The Hotel Hacienda Merida – and the staff simply couldn’t be friendlier! It is very small, very peaceful, and they even greeted me with a yummy cocktail when I arrived after a long day of arduous travel! They made a lifelong friend with THAT move! (Just so that you all don’t think I’m cheesy, I am in NO WAY being compensated for this post by the little hotel … I am just so happy with it that I had to share the info, in case any of my blogfriends happen to be in these parts and are in need of a fab spot to rest their weary bones)
So I’ll be running around here for the next week, designing, sourcing plants, redesigning, sourcing more plants, finalizing plans, redesigning … I’ll try and post in a few days, and if I happen to see something utterly FANTASTIC, I might have to post even sooner!
Enjoy the beginning of fall, everyone!
