I started a new nature journal to document what is blooming in my own yard throughout the year! It’s been a busy couple of weeks for the woodland flowers – my favorites!!! After the rush of flowers is over, maybe I’ll have time to paint all the illustrations ; )
Loving these shadeloving flowers from a garden I toured yesterday with my girlfriends – flower goals for my own gardens someday!!! I did bring home a pot of red trillium – finally! So excited to have found one and have it planted in a special little woodland border at home! I’ve been wanting a red trillium for my garden for over ten years!
Many new products with this happy pansy pattern are available in my S6 shop HERE:
Not from one of my gardens…I do hope to get one someday though!
I always plant a few pots of pansies – I try to pick the flowers that smell sweetest and I always get some johnny-jump-ups if I can for my Johnny (they’re his favorite flower). So, I was inspired to make a pansy repeat pattern! I love all the blues, violets, and peeks of yellow!
As children my sister and I called them monkey faces ; ) They’d be fun all over some leggings, a travel mug, shower curtain, etc. Which is better? Large or small scale? I never am sure, depending on the product! What do you think will look the best? I’ll share the results in the next post!
I’ve been waiting for my trilliums to bloom! These are nodding trillium, and if you don’t watch carefully, they’ll bloom without you ever knowing it! I have this prime spot in a wooded area of our yard, so I want to add a few more varieties of trilliums some day…Painted, grandiflora, and red are at the top of my list!
I take a walk around the yard nearly every day to see what is blooming…sometimes kitty comes too – I think she expects me to be hunting mice with her ; )
I take a 3 mile walk every day too, for exercise, and when I get home I like to sit a minute on the porch and rest – kitty likes that too! How is your spring going? I hope you’re enjoying all the spring flowers where ever you are!
I was able to buy a bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis) at a plant nursery last year and eagerly await it’s blooms this spring!!! I planted it along the edge of our woods where it gets dappled sunlight and undisturbed leaf litter – my one fear is the dear eating them…so I’m keeping a close watch and may stake a cage around them if necessary!
