This is just a quick post to welcome in the spring…I might be a day late, but I wanted any opportunity to share some pretty pictures with you! These are some photos I took this morning on my little verandah. I used some pre-made actions in photoshop to make them all pretty and vintage-y…I downloaded the actions off

How can you have spring without jasmine? My sister picked some this morning to have on the table for our brother’s breakfast that we cooked (more about that in another post). It makes the whole unit just smell gorgeous and reminds me of so many childhood memories.

This little plant makes me very happy. That fragile looking stem with the bud on the end has been reaching out longer and longer each day. I can’t wait to see what it becomes! I love the look of this pot and plant against the bricks since my brother tidied (and culled!) our pot plant collection.

And lastly, a big one. This is a lovely thing, this succulent. My dad picked a rosette from a plant at our local Thai restaurant and we grew it from that. The thing is, it has sort of exploded and grown so much that I can’t imagine it’s tiny beginnings! It has these tendrils cascading over the corner of our railing and it is entwined through and around it and so now we couldn’t possibly move it without doing damage. I love it that way.

Happy spring time to you all!


p.s. Another post will come tomorrow, it will involve cake I promise!
