apple blossom crown

This weekend the weather was glorious. We spent a lot of time out in the garden Saturday planting swiss chard, kale, spinach, radicchio, salad greens, green beans, mint, borage, nasturtium, carrots and strawberries. We are working on replacing many of the strawberries since many of ours passed away. We also assisted with the youth gardening club and ate dinner outside for the first time this year- lots of grilled veggies and haloumi.

The most exciting news by far is that we have a new nephew! His name is Owen and we can't wait to meet him.

Yesterday, our apple blossoms peeked and I thought I would give a flower crown with the blooms a try. My online flower class starts in a few days and I am looking forward to learning better methods in arranging, bouquets and crowns. This came out okay but, there is certainly room for improvement.
