what we love about april

1. BLOOMS DAY Though you may not have noticed it, the last decade has seen an incredible shift in floral design, impacted by social, environmental, and political factors. The gorgeous photography volume Blooms: Contemporary Floral Design (Phaidon), out April 10, is the first of its kind to explore that shift and what it means for floral art’s future. 2.

marie claire goes to washington

It’s hard to believe it was just the last presidential election when I took my daughter and son with me to the polls and explained the significance of the moment: For the first time ever, one of the two choices on the presidential ballot was a woman. Less than three years later, the 2020 field is full of major female contenders. As I write this, there are more women than men running for the Democratic nomination.
