Well, I guess it’s the time of year when I bombard you with flower photos! Daniel got me flowers over the weekend (aww). They’re so pretty that I couldn’t help but snap some photos, and then I couldn’t help but sketch them.

As a cool weather lover I do a lot of whining when warm weather rolls back around. The spring allergies, the heat, the humidity, the sweating, the mosquitos, I miss my boots, Christmas is so far away, wahhh… But, a visit to the garden shop makes me forget all my warm weather woes! My favorite shop [...]
When I was a little girl my dad taught me that spring was on its way when the hepaticas bloomed, because hepatica meant “bringer of spring” in Cherokee. More recently I found out that he made up that bit of trivia, but for years I remember digging down in the dry leaves each winter looking [...]
I found this recipe for White Chocolate Lemon Truffles a few months ago, and I was waiting for a special occasion to try them. Today I decided that a Thursday afternoon was occasion enough. I mostly wanted to make them because they’re so stinking pretty, but it turns out they’re delicious too. Lately I’ve been on [...]

I found this Lemon Crinkle Cookie recipe there and gave it a try over the weekend. The cookies were light, lemony, and perfect for spring! I followed the recipe exactly as written, but next time I’m [...]
I added new goodies to the shop! Here’s a peek at some of the new additions. Spring is in full force here, and a dusting of yellow pollen is starting to settle on everything. I can’t stop sneezing! Now through the end of March take 15% off your Wit & Whistle order with the coupon code [...]
If you’re a flower hater don’t be mad, but I want to show you a few more of my spring blooms. I promise this will be my last flower post for a while (I can probably hold off for at least a few days). Just look how pretty my window boxes are! Unfortunately I didn’t [...]
I’m digging Ruche’s latest look book. It’s full of two things that I love—persimmons and bunting banners. No wait, three things that I love—persimmons, bunting banners, and bunnies!
You’ve probably been losing sleep over whether or not my daffodils and crocuses made it out of the ground. Well don’t fret—they did!
