Our first garden roses popped out on Friday last week, and were in full bloom by the time a sunny Sunday arrived.
The lavender showed it's first purple tips, too, making me think that maybe summer might be on it's way after all.
I'm in the middle of a little project that required me to be at my desk, so couldn't linger in the sun much longer than it took to drink my morning coffee. But I cut a few blooms before I got to work and added a few sprigs of mint, which is starting to go crazy in pots around our deck.
They added a lovely fragrance to my project and a gorgeous hit of summer to my desk.
And when I was ready for a little break, they offered a bit of quick creative inspiration...
Just time for a quick sketch!
Hope your weekend was lovely, fun and productive -- and that you have a sunny week ahead. XO
