March! Spring Fever has officially set in even with the bitz of snow the last couple days. I’m constantly looking at seed catalogs and dreaming of the garden. We picked up some bare root blue hostas and a few seed packets as well. We’ve already done a basic yard cleanup and edged the sidewalk and curb out front so once it gets a little warmer we’ll easily be able to rake the leaves protecting the fresh sprouts and off it will go. We’ve got a plan for making the strip between the sidewalk and street grass free and look forward to making a new green space there. We’ve been dreaming up some other projects as well and are researching here and there. So, this month, ode to green in thinking about green sprouts and gardeny goodness with a splash of St. Paddy’s in there. Enjoy!
February! January zipped by a bit with feeling under the weather for weeks. These winter days are chugging along and I’m dreaming of the garden every day, slightly avoiding working on taxes, but meh, they’ll get done. The days are noticeably longer and the sun is peeking out a bit more it seems. The birds and squirrels are pretty active and I’m starting to hear some birds singing in the morning which gets me excited for the promise of Spring around the corner! It’s a couple weeks until Valentine’s so this month’s color is PINK! And don’t forget you can shop now for there are plenty of artgoodies products that fit the season for decor or gifting!
Color of the Month January 2018, finally! We’re off to a great but rough start. We started the New Year in vintage style and then spent a couple days in Indianapolis. Follow me on instagram for daily details! Then we came home part of a day early to avoid the snowstorm near my parents and fell sick with a horrible virus/cold. Whatever it is it’s hanging on. In the beginning it yielded a super high fever with a couple days of sleeping for me, even my eyes were so sore I couldn’t have them open long enough to read a magazine or get some good sick tv time in. Yuck. I’m on the mend now and slowly getting some energy back, and Stephan who had a milder version is feeling much better too. So, delay in getting the massive amounts of holiday decor away, delay in color of the month! I often like to start with a crisp blue January. It feels fresh and clean after all the decor comes down.
