Good morning, lovelies! How was your weekend?
Saturday was one of those perfectly sunny spring days, and I decided over breakfast that such a beautiful day called for an outdoorsy project of some sort. We stopped at the coffee shop to pick up some fuel for our adventure (a soy chai latte for me), and made our way to the garden supply store, where we meandered amongst hundreds of gorgeous plants. I know that plants can help to improve air quality, and I swear I breathed a bit easier upon stepping foot into the store. It was as if my soul, surrounded by such lush vitality, just sort of relaxed a bit.
I've been wanting to grow my own culinary herbs forever (and just haven't gotten around to it for various reasons), so we picked out a couple sweet basil plants as well as a rosemary plant.
We also chose a hydrangea, just barely beginning to bloom. A periwinkle hydrangea, in full bloom, is truly one of my all-time favorite sights to behold. I can't wait.
I've been t
alking and singing to it coaxing it along.
