If all our wishes were to come true, would we still be happy?


the perks of being a perennial


Oh, the perks of being a perennial plant. Year after year we welcome you budding beauties in the early Spring. After a (very) long Winter you are a sight for sore (and cold) eyes. You brighten our yards and our homes, which help to brighten our lives. The promise of change, warmer weather and color-filled days lies at our fingertips.

Washington Monument, Washington D.C.

The cherry blossoms were beginning their bloom in the nation’s capital over Easter weekend. What a lovely way to spend a day, taking in the sights with the family while nature is springing up all around us.
