new in the shop: chamomile cards

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!

the fairy homes

We went to the Garden Festival at the park a couple weekends back. And we were pleasantly surprised to find they had a fairy trail, filled with little fairy houses! I have loved fairies since I was little, and fairy food and homes especially. Basically anything miniature that could be constructed with sticks, dirt, and flowers. I would love to make one of these for the fairy trail someday.

And our other favorite part of the garden festival was the fresh kettle corn and strawberry limeade.

plants in the front yard

Spring has hit in the front yard. The plants are coming back to life, and starting to grow into each other. Having a full, green flower garden is always the dream, right?

The rock garden is filling in nicely. I love the way the greenery grew around the pot. It makes me glad I left it right there all winter. We just added the little flower to the pot for the spring.

Our little herb garden is still going strong! The sage and rosemary have started to get very cozy together.

And the mint is spreading like wildflower. I just read that mint is a creeper, and should be contained in a pot, but oh well! Hopefully it realizes that rock boundary was an actual serious suggestion.

What are you growing this time of year?

time to grow again

I love the Easter season. All the flowers and buds appearing. The promise of leaves in all the trees comes true. The sunshine and dirt on your hands. Being reminded that nature knows what its doing. May your weekend be filled with bunnies, blooms, and love. Have a happy holiday!

two good things today

1. I got a library card! I can finally cross it off my to-do list after a million years. I got my first couple books last night, and I’ve had my nose in them ever since. As a bonus, our nearest library has a pretty cool sign.

2. I made some banana bread yesterday evening, and it was a delicious breakfast, and also afternoon snack today.
