Fields of Dreams
Tiptoe Through the Tulips!
This month is a BIG one in my little world! And, it revolves around, you guessed it, the tulips!
First, my own tulips will start to bloom in the coming weeks. I look forward to sharing photos of them on Instagram throughout their growing season. Year to year, things are never quite the same. This year, I am trying out a new tulip variety - Finola - which will be fun to see how it grows.
Second, I will be joined by 7  friends on a dream trip to The Netherlands to see the tulips - and enjoy some culture and fun floral related activities. This is what I hope will be the first of more floral related trips to follow! And, if you are looking for travel advice, I am excited to announce that I am beginning a role as a Brand Ambassador for my travel advisor and friend, Sandy Grodsky and her firm, SG Travel!
Finally, I have 2 “official" launches of my first bespoke stationery set that features designs taken from my garden. If you live local, please stop by and say “hello”! 
I'm afraid it will all go by in a blur, so I am going to do my very best to stay present and enjoy it all! I hope your April is just as jam packed with joyful events and activities!

This Month in the Garden

Blooming Season
We are starting out the month with more rain and still cooler temps, but after that….things will warm up and I expect to be outside in the garden. The fountain is scheduled to be reassembled and Molly and I will probably start our days with a progress check of the tulips! It's a very happy day when it is warm enough to have my morning coffee outside.
From April 1 to May 1 the trees and plants in our area begin to awaken from their long winter's nap. Forsythia and daffodils are already in bloom and I know that means the tulips aren't far behind. I find it comforting that nature tends to unfold in a predictable order. 
So, expect lots of updates via Instagram! And, if you know where I live, I hope you'll come by to see them in person!
