Pancake Day (Shrove Tuesday) is always in a Tuesday and the day before Ash Wednesday. It’s the day set aside to indulge in riches before abstinence during Lent. Lent is 6 weeks long and ends with the Christian holiday of Easter.

Jump for Joy ❤️
Cheerful johnny jump ups (viola tricolor) are a bright spot in garden beds and walkways but they are also edible! They have a slight wintergreen flavor but can also be candied to use for decorating cakes etc, they can be frozen into ice cubes to dress up drinks or eaten straight from the garden for a fresh treat!

Happy Birthday Laura Ingalls Wilder.
If Candlemas Day be fair and bright,
Winter will have another flight;
But if Candlemas Day be clouds and rain,
Winter is gone and will not come again.
Candlemas Day is the halfway point between winter and spring. Enjoy this day and maybe peruse seed catalogs and sketching a garden plan - maybe by candlelight?!

TODAY IS HOUSEPLANT APPRECIATION DAY! 🪴
I visited a local nursery yesterday. I was in need of green and growing things 😊. The place was full of people buying green house plants. There was excitement. There was constant chatter!! People were almost giddy. I found myself in a tremendous happy mood - and the proud mother of a brand new monstera! 🪴🌿🍃
monstera on the right, hoya in the middle, avocado 🥑 on the left!

For all the Tasha Tudor’s out there ... ❤️
expl. This isn’t a quote from Tasha Tudor nor is it an image of her. It just reminds me of her and her love of bulbs and pretty things! “Buy more bulbs” is a TT quote!!
