I have to say one of my favorite stores in the world is Trader Joe's. Besides great food, especially their frozen section, not to mention their wine selection, they have an outstanding floral selection.
My kids and I stopped at the Geneva Trader Joe's today to pick up some treats and boy did Mom find some treats. I think my eyes about bugged out of my head when I walked in.
They had cut branches of peach blossoms...gorgeous tiny pink flowers will emerge, hopefully in time for Easter.
I thought they would look perfect in my foyers where the sun should hit them just right. The mirror behind the arrangement will make it look even more abundant when it starts blooming.
I couldn't pass up these beauties....oh be still my heart. I have longed for these flowers and now I can't think of the name. Still, mental fatigue aside, they are a lovely addition to the cottage pink theme I have for this Easter season.
I decided that since the sun was shining and I felt so happy inside, I would go outside and take a walk around the house in search of other signs that would make me feel just as good.
The buds on my crab trees were there despite the snow and cold of the weekend.
The ever hardy sedum plants were starting to emerge all over the place...they too survived the arctic nightmare.
My black alder trees in the backyard were propagating with unabandoned proliferation.
So with all this joy in my heart, much different from the way I felt this past weekend, I decided to get back to my workshop. Here is a sneak preview of just one floral arrangement I created today. I was able to get three of them finished before my energy wore out.
Hopefully, I can get the photos done tomorrow and have them up on Etsy by evening.
Oh what a difference a day makes...thank you God!
