Awaiting Gardening Season...


Hello!  Happy Friday!!  I don't usually post on Fridays, but the week has gotten away from me and here we are at Friday and I am first posting.  It's been a busy week, but I wanted to at least check in and wish you all a Happy Weekend!!!


I created a small vignette that reflects my longing for gardening season to finally begin...maybe in another month it will be warm enough to garden, at least I can hope :)


I took a few store bought herbs and wrapped them in some vintage burlap..they are so sweet and put a smile on my face every time I see them!  Definitely brightens my spirits!!








No Winter lasts forever;
No Spring skips its turn

Enjoy your weekend!

I did a little dance today after I arranged some pussy willows in a pair of wellies and miniature tulips in a chunky glass bell shaped vase.

I think we might have turned the corner.

Hi Tracey,
Isn't it lovely when we start to see those little green shoots showing themselves in the garden ? A sure sign that Spring is on it's way. I LOVE Spring.....everything is so new and fresh. Your herbs look divine and have reminded me to go and get some more.
Sorry that I haven't been around much lately.....I am having so many problems with my computer AND Blogger !! I am hoping that it will get better soon and I can get back to blogging properly. Have a lovely Springlike weekend. XXXX

Perfect quote, Tracey! Yes, I remember how I felt in the spring....readying my porch, bringing in all the newest buds.
I miss the seasons. We change here, but not quite as noticeably.

What a delightful blog you have ~ just stumbled across it and I am quite enchanted by your ethereal photographs. Especially loving the people shots that are scattered throughout the pages. Really stunning.

Summer is leaving us here, and appears to be slowly making its way to the northern hemisphere, none too soon it seems! The first little blossoms are so precious.

Greetings from a designer in Melbourne, Australia.

Linda Carole Bloom said...

Hi Tracey,
I've been following your blog for awhile and wanted to say that I love it! Your photography is wonderful, and such great style! I am a new blogger and would love it if you would visit my blog (but don't expect perfection - still learning!) Love, Linda
