Feeling a bit like Mary Lennox. The entrance to my flower field is through a gap in a tangled hedgerow of roses, wild honeysuckle and grapevines. I’ll admit that at times I squeeze through just for the sheer pleasure of it!
The first arrangement of the season. We are in that in between season when the spring flowers are past and the summer bloomers haven’t begun. Lucky for me a few of my neighbor’s iris toppled over in the rain and were in need of rescue!⠀
By the way...this is the first picture from within my new (old) studio!!! At present it’s the only corner free from demolition debris!
Each day is a succulent new beginning 🌵
I find myself often getting caught up in the stress and challenges that life throws at me. As someone with depression/anxiety, it takes a lot to remind myself to relax or slow down. I know I’m not alone in feeling this way. As the days start warming up and the nights become longer, I find myself longing for adventures. I look for moments to relax and breathe and most of the time I’m able to find them. I having a quote hanging in my bedroom that reads, “Start each day with a grateful heart.” I like to believe I do. I hope you do too.
I’m nearing the finish line with my planting!! Every annual and perennial in my gardens as well as the farm have all been started from seed in my greenhouse. If you would like to watch a fun video that Kelly and I filmed in my greenhouse where we discuss overcoming discouragement with seed starting , head over to @teamflower stories or check out the free education videos on their website at teamflower.org
It’s no surprise that I absolutely love anything nature and crystal related. We are all part of one another. One cycle of birth, life, death, and decay. Only to be filtered and reborn as part of another life form.
When I walked into @seedtostem today, I instantly felt the good vibes that resonated from this shop. You can breathe deep and feel at ease. It’s so cute and full of so many plants, oddities, home decor, and much more. It’s safe to say I fell in love 💚
Spiked Speedwell is my go to perennial for its ability to look crisp and cool all summer. The same cannot be said of the gardener. Planting in this week’s heat proved to be a bit of a challenge. A little cool down is definitely in order!
I'm throughly committed to constructing myself, becoming a physical manifestation of the dreams and ideas that are in my head. I’ve gone way too long looking into empty voids and useless ties for satisfaction & I'm ready to pour every ounce of love I have into myself and only those who reflect the energy I give onto them. I’m ready for this new period of growth.

Bouquets and Buckets
this morning didn’t go as planned (over slept, missed a yoga class) but i made it up to myself with breakfast on my porch in the sun. o and i signed myself up for the wild woman weekend retreat hosted by @vasutribe . a lot of what i am working through right now is a constant, underlying feeling of being in trouble. it’s deep seeded and something i’ve been experiencing for longer than i realized. it manifests in an inability to make a decision, inaction, serious anxiety, and the belief i have no future. so booking a trip for myself that is months away is huge. it’s me saying to myself, “you have a future and it is beautiful and you are worthy of it.” i’m sharing to stay transparent and to be vulnerable and to maybe make someone else feel less alone in their personal journey through self work. keep going, friends. we got this. ✌🏻🌱
