falling hard for flowers & a video.

last year, i fell hard for growing flowers. i wanted to plant some things to spruce up our yard, and it seemed that if we were going to have flowers, it would be nice to be able to cut some to have in the house or gift here & there. however, i honestly had very low expectations which were maybe the result of the flowers i planted two years ago failing miserably.

with equal parts refusal to submit to defeat, and an unquenchable love of flowers, i tried again. to my complete surprise a bunch of things grew! beautiful things. it was a little slice of heaven.

last harvest 2017-1027

now, here we are with days warming, sun shining, and the hum-of-what’s-to-come in the springtime air. crocus & muscari will pop up to surprise us through the thinning blanket of snow in the coming weeks, and next month, i’ll be tucking the first wave of brave, cold-embracing seeds & seedlings into our yard.

march is when things start to turn, making it that sooo close yet sooo far month. finding this slice of wonderful made my day a few weeks ago, and i had to share it. i hope it makes you smile as much as it made – and keeps making – me smile.

*so sorry! i tried to link the video here directly, but no dice. i’ll keep trying ;o)

[this was one of the bouquets from the final harvest last year…October 27th.]
