Woo hoo! Happy spring!
OK, technically the first official day of spring was yesterday so I’m a day late. It snowed here yesterday though, so it didn’t feel particularly spring-like.
Here in Minnesota we won’t actually be able to start gardening for at least another 4 to 6 weeks. On average we are not safe from potential frosts until May 15.
But the days are definitely getting longer and last Saturday was bright and sunny with a high in the upper 40’s. Some of you from warmer climates might be shaking your head at that, but for us sunshine and 48 degrees in March feels pretty dang awesome. Lots of snow was melting!
To celebrate the arrival of spring, I hauled out my Cricut machine and added words to some stuff.
It may be too early to plant in the garden, but it’s not too early to plant up some succulents for your windowsill.
Reclaiming Beautiful (the shop in Stillwater, MN where I sell on commission) is bringing back their famous succulent bar starting tomorrow. Basically they have everything set up for potting up some succulents. You choose a container, fill it with soil, choose some succulents to add and then add some further embellishments if desired. If you are local, check out the full details here.
I’ll be bringing in some vintage-ware that can be used as containers.
I love planting in old enamelware.
Pretty vintage china is perfect for succulents too.
So, if you’re local you should swing by Reclaiming Beautiful, and if you aren’t local, head to your favorite nursery and find something green to pot up in a vintage container to tide you over until spring really does arrive!
