FoxGlove Gardening Truck and Tools

Over lunch on Aspen Street on April 6, 2016 Joan Abbott of FoxGlove Gardening sold her beloved garden maintenance and landscaping business to Jason and I.  This is a start of a new chapter for us.  We are business owners in Flagstaff, Arizona doing what we are passionate about… gardens, plants, flowers, color, design, the outdoors, beautifying the community, stewarding the land!

Jason and I are co-owners of the company, but I have been trying to think of what my title is beyond that.  Jason is clearly the gardener! and I would like to not be thought of as the bookkeeper, as that will not be my focus this time around.  I am excited about creating the branding and marketing for our new business, providing fine customer service, and ensuring that the company continues to offer exceptional service and high aesthetic quality as it did under Joan.

I love the fleet of toyota trucks with painted tool handles, the FoxGlove name and what it stands for, the magical plant itself, and most importantly appreciate the beautiful gardens that FoxGlove tends around town that are uniquely verdant, vibrant, and thoughtfully designed.  I believe that FoxGlove will be a great launching pad for my creative services and pursuits in the months and years to come.

In the meantime, it is a great honor to work along side Joan Abbott (she will be sharing her knowledge and helping with the transition for the first year) as we learn everything there is to know about this special business that has enriched Flagstaff season to season over the past 37+ years!

Thank you Joan for believing in us and being so patient with the process…

…many thanks go out to our family members, friends & colleagues in Austin, and new found advisors and connections (and now friends!) in Flagstaff!!

Coming Together for the Elkhorn Ranch

Elkhorn Ranch, Tucson shirt design by Sarah Presson and Annie Taylor for Eye Like Design

Elkhorn Ranch 2015 shirt design.

I always think about the Elkhorn Ranch in Tucson  this time of year.  Growing up it was a family tradition to spend our Thanksgivings there and connect with relatives and dear friends.  It continues to be a place to be with family, as my sister and her husband Charley Miller own and operate the Elkhorn.

The above art work started a year ago, when Mary gave me a collection of brands that the ranch has been gathering for a few generations.  Families that have become part of the Elkhorn Ranch community are encouraged to create a brand of their own. Last year I re-drew the brands and  Jenna Foster, a talented artist and designer in Austin cleverly put all the brands (over a hundred I would say) into a repeat pattern for new table runners (printed by Spoon Flower).  My mom,  Nancy Taylor cut and hemmed them for new table runners just in time for last year’s holiday feast!  Fast forward 12 months and this time Sarah Presson of Eye Like Design selected a few brands to make this cheerful new t-shirt design that will be hitting the Elkhorn Shop shelves by Christmas!

Just another example of how fun and dynamic it is to collaborate with others.
