hello its

May

"So build the hillocks gaily-
Thou little spade of mine
Leaving nooks for Daisy
And for Columbine-"
~Emily Dickinson

May magic! The month to do "all things". ...I'm a little bit early and its actually the end of April but somehow I never finished the newsletter for April, so on to the next month!

Lilacs, Lilies of the Valley and Honeysuckles are all blooming and the air in my garden is thick and dewy with their scents. Birds are singing so loudly in the morning that they wake me from sleep. There are so many blossoms blooming I can hardly stand it. May is really one of the most joyful months out of the year.

This month on the blog and Instagram, I will share my garden progress as I go. I'll have a post on how to make your home a little more cottage looking for spring and summer, and there is always a new recipe...this one is for Cinco de Mayo.

The little flower and vegetable seedlings are crying out for me to plant them! They have been in and out of the greenhouse so much. I am hoping it is now safe to plant...please Mother Nature cooperate! Mulch was picked up and it's sitting in a large pile behind the garage, waiting for the blossoms to drop. All of the boxwood hedges have been trimmed and bulbs have been separated and replanted. Love waking up early these days and getting out there!

On the weekends we visit The Little Blue Cabin and have finally started working on it again! We are plastering the ceiling above the loft and living area...follow along on instagram "thelittlebluecabin"

During the in-between times when it's raining or cold, I have been sewing a village of garden houses in my little studio shed, while listening to Monty Don's book "Down to Earth". If you haven't watched "Gardener's World" on BBC (and usually can find on YouTube) then, my friends, you in for a treat! Lovely, beautiful, English gardens from professionals as well as hobby gardeners. so much inspiration!

How I love this time of year!! Enjoy every second in this "want to do everything" spring season but take a few moments to stop, and breath, and appreciate all that beauty God has blessed us with this May.

How to Grow Sweet Peas from Seed – Spring Garden Planning

With my one big trunk in tow, we pulled up to a beautiful old stately home that was encircled by a stone wall covered in jasmine. Turning in the one opening onto a curved brick drive, there was a front garden that framed the house with tall pine trees, a persimmon, a few old palms, pachysandra, and and other plants that I don’t know their names, but sure left an
