My window boxes are looking glorious right about now! Do you have a good spot to hang one? If so, do it! I planted daffodil bulbs and pansies in the fall and pretty much forgot about them. They survived this especially cold winter, and now they’re blooming all over the place. Next fall I think I’ll double up (or triple up?) on the flower bulbs!

I know it’s a little early, but I just added my new Mother’s Day cards to the shop!

I’m working on updating some of my older card designs. My style has changed quite a bit since I created my earliest cards, but I love their sentiments too much to discontinue them. Do you ever revisit old projects and redo them when your tastes change?
By the way, next week I’ll have a bunch of new Mother’s Day cards ready for you!

The most beautfiul thing happened today! We had a few warm days last week, and spring blooms popped out all around the yard. Today winter is back in full force and everything is coated in ice—including all those confused flowers. If there’s anything more beautiful than flowers, it’s gotta be flowers encased in ice.
Doesn’t this white daffodil look like it’s made of glass?

I love philodendrons even though they’re common and not terribly interesting. They do well in low light and will happily forgive you if you forget to water them for a few weeks. They also vine out all over the place, which is so satisfying. I’ve killed almost every kind of house plant, but I have yet to kill a philodendron. Once I even tried to kill one! I wanted to replace it with a different plant, so I didn’t water it for at least a month. It just kept on living. Finally I threw it out still alive—horrible, I know. If you think you can’t keep house plants alive, I challenge you to kill a philodendron.
