Happy Monday! I’m in the Potting Shed, celebrating the arrival of March, anxiously awaiting ‘the green’ of spring!
And as it’s the first Monday of the month, I’m joining my blogging friends for some flower therapy and Monday Morning Blooms! You’ll find my blogging friends’ blooming creations at the bottom of this post.
Our theme for this week’s edition of Monday Morning Blooms was ‘green’! When the calendar page turns to March, I think ‘green’. . . ready for new growth of the leaves to appear on the flowering shrubs and trees here in North Carolina and the beginning of gardening season. It’s also the celebratory color of St. Patrick’s Day.☘️
I’m a lover of all things bee and was all abuzz when I found this Belleek Shamrock Honey Pot at a favorite antique mall this fall.🐝
Bees are buzzing in the Potting Shed in anticipation of spring. . .
Bee skeps on plates. . .
Bees on flatware tucked in gardening gloves. . .
Bees buzzing on glasses. . .
And a bee on a favorite green pitcher.
This Devon Ware Fieldings Stoke-on-Trent British Scenes platter ‘Ludington Warwickshire’ was another find at a favorite antique mall this fall.
I was drawn to the cottage scene with the garden flowers and bee skeps.
Interesting side note: Ludington is misspelled from the factory, it should be ‘Luddington, Warwickshire’, a small village in the county of Warwickshire in the United Kingdom.
Lavender-Rosemary Goat Milk Soap is an easy DIY and makes a fun party favor or gift for the gardener.
These bars take about 10 minutes to come together and are ready to gift in under an hour, my kind of project! Buzz over HERE for the DIY details and tutorial.
Assorted pitchers are blooming with white and green grocery store blooms. . .
Hydrangeas, alstroemeria, stock, mums, spray roses and some green sprigs of abelia snipped from the shrubs.
A vintage Woodman’s Famous Bee-Ware Smoker hangs over the window above the table . . .
I was smitten with the graphics of the bee keeper on the smoker. . .
Beauty is in the eye of the *bee* holder. ;) 🐝
