Yes, exactly a week ago we were having a rare snow and ice storm, but today the temperature is projected to reach a balmy 60F, so we’re embracing spring! After all, it’s not like we have much choice in the matter-the robins have been taking over our trees and empty garden beds for quite some time now.
Robin In The Rain-Fine Art Photography by IntheDivide. $25 for an 8×8 print. There is no bigger sign of spring than a robin, end of story. Granted, they’ve been flitting around for a few months now (sorry, birdies, but global warming is a jerk) but put them together with warmer weather and there’s no deadlier mix to cut productivity in half. At least. But even if we get nothing accomplished past “cleaning up the yard” (aka “wandering around outside taking deep breaths of fresh air, maybe with a stick in our hand”), we’ll still count it a good day.
Green Grass Ring in Gun Metal by SeahagAndWalrus. $24. I’m tired of the brown grass, I’m longing for the green, I’m seeking more than frozen ground, I’m missing fields of…sprreeeeeeng? Close enough. In short, I want to see some green grass, and with this super cool ring all I have to do is look down. (Also good for attracting leprechauns around St. Patrick’s Day as well, or so I’d imagine.)
Paper Flowers in Creamsicle, Peaches, and Creams by FlowerThyme. $24 for 12. The flowers in the garden may not be ready to pop their heads up yet, but why wait? These gorgeous handmade flowers will last all year, and hey, if these color combo isn’t your thing, check out FlowerThyme’s beautiful shop-she has plenty more to choose from, and can do custom orders to boot!
Custom Indoor Greenhouse by jpants4sale. $2,100. This is every gardener’s dream: function, style, and GREEN THINGS. Granted, you don’t have to grow just green things-this amazing greenhouse can also function as a home for your favorite frogs or reptiles, but us…we’d stuff it full of flowers, herbs, and flowers. And herbs. And winter suddenly wouldn’t seem so long.
