We have a few flowers blooming in the yard, but I don’t feel right picking them when they are still working hard to grow. At the store this morning, I saw they had wildflower bouquets with rosemary in them, and I thought to myself- I definitely can do that.
My ma has this amazing tree in the front yard. Every spring, for a very brief period of time, it fills with millions of little white flowers.
This year, we braved all the busy, buzzing bees visiting all the flowers so we could take a picture under it. It was worth the risk to get a picture with my honey.
In the fall, Jon and I would end the day with a nice cup of chamomile tea while we curled up on the couch together. We found some chamomile seeds to plant this spring, and we are excited to see the dainty flowers grow soon. Send a comforting hello with a stitched up chamomile card, now in the shop!
We’ve been doing some very thorough garden planning the past couple weeks. The late freeze set us back a little in timing, but everything will get planted soon!
I picked the last of our winter lettuces and greens this week. I lovingly washed them all, and sent the extras to the office so it will reach the destiny of being eaten.
We are giving square foot gardening a try this season, so we mapped out our beds, and did some research in companion planting.
We planted some seeds in a couple beds last week before the rain came, and look at that- they are already starting to grow! We have lots of beans, and a whole row of corn we are cheering on!
Its the first day of spring, but the weather is playing it cool and acting like its not a big deal. I think a thunderstorm is predicted for later. But our newly planted seeds need some water anyway!
My second skirt for the upcoming season is this floral creation. I’ve already worn it a couple times. The pattern is super simple, and I added a little roundness to the hem in the back. A perfect breezy skirt for when it finally decides to be springtime.
In preparation for the freezing weather, I went to the store and bought like a week’s worth of dinners. Because no one wants to risk the grocery store parking lot in the ice. So hopefully we won’t be forced to leave home much until the sun returns. But this guy doesn’t seem to mind the cold at the moment. Roses are red, bluebonnets are blue, please don’t freeze, it will be spring soon!
Flowers are usually my first choice of doodle when given a blank piece of paper. Here are some fun floral finds to get in the spring mood: fancy flower and fruit ball cap, beautiful floral print hot pads for the table, a blooming scarf, and pretty lotion to add some flowers to your nightstand (after playing in the dirt and sun all day, gotta get some lotion on those hands!)
We celebrated our first Easter being married! I wore my special Easter dress and this handsome guy on my arm. We ate so much Easter candy and cookies and enjoyed the sunshine together. Hope you had a lovely spring weekend too!
PS- Next year, I totally want an Easter bonnet!
