Hello and Happy Monday! I hope you treated your Mom to a special day yesterday. My Sunday was relaxing and chill. After delivering homemade bouquets to all my friends few days earlier, I received lots of flowers in return. For a flower gal like me, Mother’s Day flowers are the best 💐💐😀. I was also treated to brunch and dinner made by my girls. A delicious creamy polenta baked with spring veggies for brunch, veggie stir fried rice for dinner, and a sweet blueberry cake for dessert. All in all it was a perfect Mother’s Day 💕.Continue reading Mother’s Day Flowers

Hello and Happy Friday! Its spring all over town and birds have been going nuts building nests around my garden.

When the weather is wintery like this I really miss gardening, and to make up for it my kitchen usually looks like a greenhouse 🍃🍀☘️🌿🌺💐😊. I bring cuttings indoors and purchase potted flowering plants to enjoy inside as well.
