victoria day.

5.24.2012


On our slightly gloomy day off, I drove us three girls out to the local greenhouse. If there's a remedy for that feeling you get after one too many grey days, I think I've found it - it's just a dome. Until you duck inside, only to find that this dome harbours it's own little season of colour, a certain newness that only comes later on in the prairies.
Developing my green thumb is on my summer to-do list, and planting day cannot come soon enough. That, and fresh-from-the-garden suppers on the deck. 

What do you grow?

  21. Your mother is looking quite chic and sassy. I like that picture.
    I have already planted my pots at home, but now I'm stuck in this hospital and can't even enjoy them! Well, once this baby is born and we get home, then I can!
    I also love garden fresh suppers on the deck...even though I only planted flowers...I guess I'll have to get my produce from the grocery store and just pretend they are garden fresh. Today I am dreaming of Gran's green bean soup. Thank goodness our auntie's can make it just as well.

    1. Leah, your comment made me so happy.
      Maybe somebody needs to bring your plants over to the hospital room? ;) I've been praying for you and Sparty lots. I can't wait to see him(?), even if only in pictures.
      And yes, it's a good thing we have our aunties.
      Miss you!

  24. I've never had much of a green thumb, but I wish I did. We have our own greenhouse in the yard and it's peaceful to be in. Maybe I can get into gardening like my mother and brother do, but I truly prefer to just sit and watch as they turn up soil and give flowers new homes.
