Flowers Everywhere!! (& A Pay-What-You-Can Sale on My Spring Crafts eBook)

Spring Flowers 21

The entire garden popped into bloom while I was away at my Grandma's.

Coming home to see color everywhere was incredible. The dogwoods and redbud, the tulips and daffodils, the creeping phlox and lilac, the candytuft and ajuga… The everything! Everywhere I looked there were flowers in bloom.

There's a quote I love by Ralph Waldo Emerson—"The earth laughs in flowers."

Perhaps it's more appropriate for summer, but after a longer-than-usual winter, including snows during our spring break, this floral abundance seems so joyful

I love flowers. Love spring.

The girls and I planted extra bulbs last winter so that we'd have lots and lots of flowers blooming this spring. It's both my favorite season and the season in which we spend the most time in the garden. Spring is when we need and appreciate the flowers the most. The summer beauties just don't get their proper due from us.

Spring may have gotten a late start here, but we're taking full advantage of it now. Having picnics in the backyard, bringing in armfuls of flowers for bouquets, admiring and smelling the flowers (lilacs are my favorite scent-wise and immediately transport me to my childhood on McKay Creek in Eastern Oregon), planting the vegetable garden (a project the girls and their grandmother have undertaken together), and just breathing it all in.

Spring is most definitely here and it's glorious!

    Wow, so many colors! We just got 2 feet (that’s right… feet) of fresh snow here in Colorado. sigh. We went outside yesterday and painted flowers in the snow (and on the snow fort!) because we are ready for some color again. In about a month we’ll get our two weeks of spring and then it will finally be summer! Enjoy all the flowers!

    Thank you, thank you. I am at the moment flat broke in money and energy and joy… after a month of various family issues like stomach viruses, broken feet, and the like. You gave me just the boost I needed today to look forward to better days and a happy spring. I will pay your generosity forward and smile whenever I break out this book to do projects with my children. Thank you!

    I’m so excited for this spring book! We have enjoyed your winter ebook over and over again. It was the best $10 bucks spent, in my opinion. I just purchased this spring version and have your new BIG PAPER book sitting right beside me on the couch. Your artistry is blessing my family day after day. Thank you.
