From My Inspiration File: First Bulbs to Bloom

I’m here today to share with you the start of another new column I am going to be doing. Today, I am introducing “From My Inspiration File,”  where I hope to share  everyday things I’m passionate about, such as treasures discovered in our yard and gardens, time spent on a trail, a visit to the botanical gardens, a morning at the farmers market, an afternoon at the zoo, a day on the beach or on the trails.

These are things in life that bring me peace and require unplugging from social networking as a way to find my own voice, to be more original, and to create my own muse. (how ironic, I know) I’m hoping you might be inspired too or simply uplifted by some of the shapes, textures, and colors I hope to share.

We’ve had an streak of unusually warm weather around here lately. In fact, it feels like summer already, rather than the cold, damp days we usually have in March. So I spent a lot of time cleaning up our yard and gardens over my spring break.

Spring is my favorite season, so I’ve started my daily treasure hunt. Right now, the crocuses are opening.

They are the tiniest, most subtle flower that could easily be missed if you don’t know where to look.

Our daffodils started to open too! They are such a cheerful flower.

Stay tuned for lots more garden updates as everything around here comes out of dormancy and back to life. Thanks for stopping by!

PS – in case you missed the release of my first sewing pattern (yippee!) over the weekend, click here for more information. More patterns to be released soon!

  • I love the spring flowers! Our daffodils have faded, but there are still a few grape hyacinths hanging on. The crocuses are beautiful!

    I’m looking forward to more of your unplugged inspirations!

  • Our daffodils are in full bloom here, some are even dying already! And the deer are eating my crocus!

  • Love your Adirondak chair and your flowers. WE have been having great weather here, too!

  • Love that daffodil, there is something special about bulbs, how they come up to make out day. Enjoy that chair you have in the back yard.

    Happy days.

    • Thanks Bev! It’s great fun to walk through our yard each morning and evening, looking for new flowers in bloom. Spring is such an exciting time of year!

  • Love your flowers! So glad you are enjoying some nice spring weather. Congratulations on your first pattern release! Very exciting stuff!

    • Thanks Rene! We have been very lucky lately to enjoy summer-like weather, which is at least 6 weeks early. I appreciate the love for my pattern release! It’s been a lot of work over the past few months, so it feels good to have the first one out there. I’m excited to have a couple more almost ready too.

  • Congrats on the new sewing pattern!

    I like that seat cushion:)

  • So great that you are having spectacular weather, just in time for your spring break!

    Congratulations on the release of your first pattern! Yay!!!
