Gardening Fashion

Gardencore continues to takeover the world of fashion.

Finally, my years of buying secondhand workwear and hoarding old clothes because "I'll still do my gardening in them" is vindicated:

Blueprints Go Green in the World of Architecture

In our opinion, it's the buildings which combine man-made structures with the natural world that stand the test of time. The recent and growing push for sustainable building practices and nature-conscious design is a welcome one.

Here are our favorite finds of the week in green architecture:
