Spring has well and truly sprung in the sunshine state! Windows need to be opened to clear out the mustiness of Winter. Woolly slippers are being replaced with cute little house flip flops (mine even have pink diamantes....trés chic).
The vegie garden is calling me daily to come and re-invigerate her with a thorough stripping, mulching, fertilising and planting of gorgeous Spring veg. Baby carrots, cos lettuce, snow peas and asparagus all encased with an ethereal halo of smiling pansies.
Dusting becomes a need rather than a want...or "avoid" as in our house. Those little cobbies you've been spying up on the ceiling whilst lying in bed must simply be swept away. Cleaning out cupboards, making lists and overdosing on storage solution catalogues is the pastime du jour.
And outside time when the dew dries quickly on the grass, sunshine caresses pasty legs rather than burning like Summer sun, there are ladybugs aplenty and sapphire blue butterflies meander through the yard on their way to some fantastic Spring time soirée.
To celebrate all things Spring, Vic from Punky and Me held a festive "Here Comes the Sun" swap and this little vintage sheet and broderie anglaise hopscotch was my sunshiney gift to her complete with an embroidered vine. For other snippets of Spring and all things crafty tiptoe through the tulips to this delightful spot.
