Spring, flowers and planting/garden time.. will be here before we know it! Of all the seasons I think Spring is my favorite, the new flowers and grass – the birds singing in the trees, but planting and gardening can go on year round.
What kind of idea’s – gifts for others or yourself – does this topic bring to mind? It can be indoor gardening as well.
Practical, whimsical, down and dirty (in the dirt planting), or garden design, while wearing your favorite white outfit? I’d love to hear your thoughts and see your items.
Spring is a noisy time of the year in our garden. The birds are competing for mates, building nests, and raising babies. The bees are buzzing in the flowers, and the frogs are singing their croaking chorus in the evening. We love to sit outdoors in the cool evening, enjoying the sights and sounds of Nature!
Our downloadable quilt block pattern features a little frog who isn’t quite sure whether the bumblebee is tasty or dangerous. This would be a fun decoration for a kitchen towel, mug rug, or spring wall hanging.
I love the spring season in my garden, when all plants grow up and every day we discover something new.
This year will be the third year in which I will be working intensively on a vegetable garden to provide ourselves with the whole year.
I look forward to do this.
I spend much time in my garden, and love to protect myself with one of my Sun Hats.
I’m knee-deep in seed catalogs and writing in my garden journal. In addition to my vegetable garden, we plant Impatiens, vinca, geraniums, and other annuals in colorful and vintage pots. My perennial gardens are full of wildflowers that run the gamut of color and height. Butterfly gardens full of bergamot, sawtooth sunflower, shooting stars, turk cap lilies, day lilies, Easter lilies, bearded iris, and on and on.
Gardening to me is about feeding us and creating a beautiful peaceful place to relax and reconnect with yourself and your spiritual guide.
My mother was an award-winning rose gardener. The photo below was taken in her garden a year before she passed away. I’ve always wanted to grow the abundant, fragrant and colorful roses she tended in our garden growing up. I have given in to the fact that mine will never be like hers! Not enough time and too many garden animals. I want to devote more time to an edible garden. We have gorgeous wild roses growing in our garden, along with a good amount of other forest greenery that provide food for wild animals. I’m hoping that will be enough to distract them from eating the edible garden for MY table. Even with fences, though, I’m not too confident. With more than a foot of snow on the ground now in February, the deer and rabbits and fox and woodchucks will be hungry this spring.
I love springtime! Everything is fresh and new. I like the green grass and trees and all the colorful flowers…and they always look the prettiest against the blue skies of a Oklahoma day. Sadly, my nose and eyes don’t share in this enjoyment! So I celebrate springtime inside.
We made this whimsical floral pillow cover with spring in mind. The pink and yellow flowers are just so “happy”. Our pillow cover would fit perfectly in just about any home decor setting.
Here in Orlando, the seasons are not as defined by weather as they are in other parts of the country. You have to depend on decor to help your mind get into the spirit of the season. I created this hand embroidered Spring ornament to celebrate the flowers and birds that best represent Spring.
Whether you love to garden indoors or out, this adorable little water spike will help out with the amount of water needed in your house plants! We love collecting these little critters and have found them in lots of different shapes. This little guy is just in time for Easter and Spring – an adorable bunny rabbit who would like to help with your watering instead of eating your plants!
