Oh, this blogging is so much fun!! I am meeting so many of you, new friends, and thank you so much for your lovely comments!! It means so much to me to know that there are so many kindred spirits out there!!
I "played" in the greenhouse this weekend (in between working - LOL) and made this bowl of ferns and sedums and a fabulous little plant I just love for both it's texture and color! The little red "polka dot" plant in the center, also known as hypoestes, makes containers pop!! And best of all, it comes in four colors, the red, white (which looks fantastic with lilac and lavender colored flowers), pink and rose. So versatile and so easy to care for.
I am looking for my notebook that has my herbal recipes for sachets and sleep pillows - will post when I find it :) - I have been rearranging all my studio rooms - hey, kids move out, Mom takes over another room - only fair, I say, since I had to raise 'em and teach 'em to keep said rooms clean!! Now I can mess them up (now, you know all those piles of fabric, books, lace, hatboxes, picture frames, yada, yada......are not REALLY a mess.......and after all, we might NEED some of that fluff and stuff for the next creation!) My poor husband's eyes just spin when he sees me come in from the thrift store, flea market, antique mall, garage sale, my mother's house.......of course, go into his workshop and see the bins and boxes and little glass containers of all manner of screws, nails, thingees (yeah, I can't even tell what some of that stuff IS) and the huge STACK of wood - do I question HIS integrity on what HE considers necessary???? Of course not!! So I say, same goes!! All in fun - he actually does get pleasantly surprised when I bring out an art creation - he is amazed that I can make something from what he was raised to think of as "JUNK" - (oh, what a word!! - we could go on and on about THAT word!!)
I am off to get ready for another crazy day in the nursery business - I have some baby plants coming in today - if I get a minute I may take a picture to show you - they are just so CUTE when they are babies!! Have a very lovely day, my friends, and take time to stop and smell the flowers!!!
I am happily married to the love of my life, my soul-mate, my very best friend. I have four beautiful grown children, two with spouses that I claim as mine, too, and four darling grandchildren!! I grew up on the beaches of Maine, in the antiques and art and music world, and I am now in the plant world with my darling hubby. We live an organic, natural lifestyle and try to teach as many as we can. We are truly blessed by God, thankful for every day and every opportunity to meet people like you!
