Sweet Narcissus

Narcissus “Sweetness”, Narcissus “Cheerfulness”, Vinca minor (Periwinkle) and Syringa vulgaris (lilac).

Our woodland garden beauties are awakening, slowly, gently.
Narcissus “Tete a Tete” (above), with its tiny yellow trumpet, is always among the first, along with crocus and helleborus.
(Although the lilac is not blooming yet. These images are from an extensive shoot I did last year featuring spring woodland flowers, all of them from our garden.)

The garden will claim more and more of my attention as the weeks unfold and the plants unfurl their magic. But the main activity this week is preparing for my show on the 24th. Wouldn’t it be grand if ALL of you could attend? We’re going to have a fabulous time!

Many thanks for the wonderful feedback on the first issue of the newsletter! I’m so pleased you enjoyed the downloads and goodies. And thanks especially to those of you who filled out the e-course survey – your answers are invaluable. (If you haven’t and would like to, you can here.)

Wishing you many opportunities for tea and bright flowers this week.

p. s. I believe I neglected to mention last week the most recent post at Paris By Two. Enjoy!

Dear March

Sunrise through fog, Skagit Valley daffodil fields, March, 2008

Dear March,
Here you are at last.

Blustering in with
songbirds and brave narcissus,
 but trailing wisps of
winter’s melancholy

 Teasing with
changeling weather but uplifting
with hints of
spring’s bounty

Dear March,
Here you are at last.

I’ve awaited your treasures and beauty!

For my friends in the Pacific Northwest, on Saturday, March 24th, 10 am – 4 pm, I’ll be doing a trunk show at my favorite vintage shop, Faded Elegance in Snohomish. The theme is “Springtime in Paris” and I’d love you to come and say hello! More details to come.

And the newsletter will be launching this Wednesday, March 7th. You can still sign up!

Wishing everyone a very happy new week.

Just to Say – Thank you

roses and ranunculus, march 2011

Thank you, thank you for the generous, amazing comments and heartfelt wishes on the Artful Blogging article. It means so much more being able to share it with you.

And I’d like to in turn send those wishes and congratulations to two dear blogging friends who were featured in the same issue: Karin from Sweden, blogging at Karin A Photography and Abby from Abby’s Paperie Garden. Both ladies have a gorgeous aesthetic sense and you’ll love visiting them.

(I’m putting the finishing touches on my first newsletter so it can go out at the end of the week. If you haven’t signed up to receive it, and would like to, you still can, of course, right here.)

Happy Week to you!
