My allium are giant! Clavicle (but not quite shoulder) high. Ok, maybe mid-sternum. #desmoinesnewhouse #allium

Salad bar! #desmoinesnewhouse

I love seeing everyone's mothers so here's my lovely mom. I remember her paisley top very well and thinking it was hip. This was her Big Texas Hair period. @scto62 you must have been the photographer

Won't last long. Farmers market finds of spring: green garlic and snowpea vines @dtfarmersmarket @gradeagardens

Why I 💚edible gardening. Even with my travel schedule I can gather all this from my backyard planters on a rainy Saturday morning #saladforbreakfast #desmoinesnewhouse @getgrowing.bhg

The best kind of curtains #desmoinesnewhouse #crabapple

I don't officially have an office at our new offices until uptown editors move downtown but the outdoor cafeteria with a view of the Hudson is a pretty good substitute! 🌞🌤 @betterhomesandgardens #meredithcorporation

So happy to finally be plant shopping! with @orrlica and @bonesimpledesign. They tried to restrain me but I managed to fill the cart anyway #desmoines #scentedgeranium

J-Lo brought the house down at tonight's Time 100 party. It was awe-inspiring to be in the room with the honorees. I had the pleasure to sit next to #metoo activist Tarana Burke and her mother and daughter. Danced with Mia Farrow. Chatted with Kehinde Wiley and Maxine Waters. Had a fairly long talk with my new imaginary BFF Leslie Jones. I don't usually get the chance to be such a name-dropper in my line of houses and gardens. So a heartfelt thank you to our colleagues at Time for all their important and society-changing work #time100 @time

We came across an unexpected patch of native bloodroot in Central Park looking like it just arrived at a party. #earthday #nativeamericanherbs #bloodroot #Sanguinaria

Spring has finally arrived to #jacksonheights

It's been my great pleasure to spend a couple of days in the new Meredith Corp offices in Birmingham. The lovely tree-enclosed atrium building (formerly Time Inc. and Southern Progress) houses Southern Living, Food & Wine, Coastal Living, Cooking Light, Oxmoor House, and beautiful test kitchens and photo studios. I could not be more impressed with the creative teams I met with here. I felt so at home I almost reverted to my native ya'll that 30 years in NYC has erased. Thanks for the southern hospitality!
