It's been so warm that we are entering March with blossomville.
Kind of love it really.
I just had to bring some apricot blossoms inside
The giant old apricot tree is doing its beautiful thing.
Every year I feel like I just can't absorb it enough.
Tree blossoms are so magical aren't they?
The bees are buzzing around madly.
I love early spring, what an inspiring time of year.
Freesia and little roses are starting to turn up too.
I head out and collect bits and bobs to bring into the house.
It's sort of silly how giddy the whole thing makes me.
The trees just lost their leaves in November, and now spring is here a tad early.
The boys romp around in endless fields of wild mustard out back.
And I spot...
Yes, can you believe it?
We have a dozen carolina jasmine vines in the garden that are blossoming too.
This one is in a sunny spot.
The butters love it.
Love them so, don't you?
Our oldest carolina jasmine is hidden in this shady nook as it crawls up a big tree.
It is a domed shady spot that I adore.
Once in there you can pretend you are just about anywhere really.
Fairy tale moments ;-)
Just like popcorn popping open...
The fruit trees come alive.
I run and run around the garden path, which goes around the perimeter of the property.
And every time I pass the giant apricot tree I smell milk and honey.
One of my favorite things ever, I think.
Tufts of goodness.
So many scents dancing in the breeze.
The freesia so perfume sweet.
Jars with flowers.
Well we all know what Martha would say.
It's a good thing.
The excitement of the gardens coming to life, herbs springing up, has me going through my cookbook collections.
Spices and color infuse my mind.
It's happening in the high desert of Arizona my friends.
I know some of you are still in cold and snow.
Some of you love it, some of you don't.
But hey, just think how awesome your spring and summer will be?
For now I leave you with the swirling scent of apricot blossoms and freesia.
If you are freezing right now, then I know this post is borderline obnoxious.
Don't throw a snow ball at me please!!
In a couple of days I will begin the wild chamomile harvest.
But today it's crazy windy.
Rain on its way.
The tiny wildflower sprouts will love it.
Time is fluttering right by isn't it?
Passing like lightning.
As dogs snore in their warm beds.
Never knowing what day it is.
Just living in the moment.
In ways we cant even imagine.
See you soooon!!
ps: I know some of you know already, but I finally joined Instagram a few months ago, and I spend days I'm not here over there. Pop in sometime if you'd like ♥
