happy spring, fools

I get real real cranky about spring. People come out of the woodwork and walk around giddy, making happy plans to do things like picnic and go for bike rides. Fuck that, I'm glad that it's sleeting out today. And I'm going to continue hoping for near-freezing temperatures for the next few weeks, while I keep the shutters closed and listen to will oldham on repeat.

That's all.

OK so I might organize a trip to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden to see the magnolia grove because it's going to be in full bloom by the beginning of next week. But thats all.

Hey Sarah, Would you be able to share what your source is for those pedestal bowls?

Thanks!

Totally diggin' all the whites and green in those arrangements. Bought a shade plant "spring kit" with lily of the valley, ivy, and japanese painted fern. We'll see how it goes...I mean grows.

Awwwwwww! Don't be such a cranky butt! LOL! You crack me up. I definitely am one of the spring loving fools, but I sure do have my moments (like today) where something that ruined everyone's good mood would entertain me to no end.

My mom texted me a picture of fresh snowfall in Woodstock today. Waves of jealousy, just washing over me. There's something infuriating about everyone being all chipper when in fact, spring means we're fast approaching the humid, sweat-stained inferno that is summer in NY.

Gently walk through the heart of your loved ones in Japan. Ideally designed gifts just make the pathway for that. Many a times you expressed your love for them, but you still opt for doing that again and again. You are making your loved ones happy, and the heavenly perception for that never gets old. Gifts prompt you to do it once more. Visit http://www.japanfloristshop.com/Mothersday_To_Japan.asp for details.

Gifts are always your best friends when it’s about letting your sentiments loose to your loved ones. Gifts are special for all the events, because it reflects the specialty of the relations between two persons. It minimizes the distance, and enthralls the festivity.

Oh be still my beating heart - could these images (or for that matter, your entire blog!) be any more exquisite? I dream of one day owning my own little piece of heaven such as yours. Until then I shall be saving my pennies to visit your little slice of perfection on a plate!
