Spring Flowers and Lavender

Lavender and Cinquefoil (from the rose family) always add a spring touch.

Rain Lillies

Aside from cooking and entertaining, I love flowers and herbs. Early spring, especially, is the time where beautiful flowers are available. Let me show you what I’ve been up to so far. Above are my rain Lilies. They bloom during the summer rainy season.

Spathiphyllum

Bird Feeder

Having Jasmine grow up a bird feeder with its little star-shaped white flowers begin to bloom. Their fragrance fills up the yard with such a beautiful aroma. I also want to say, checking the zone (climate area, etc..) in which plants or flowers will thrive is really important. I always try to Google the name of the plant or flower to seek the information first.

This Haas avocado tree is really an experiment for me. I planted this pit from the avocado and this is what has happened so far. They say that the avocado tree grows very slowly, and I guess I’ll just have to be patient.

Hydrangeas

Hydrangeas are definitely my favorite flower. Their beautiful large blooms and deep green leaves add so much color to my backyard,

Planting flowers or plants and watching them blossom and grow is an amazing feeling.

Comfort Place

Periwinkles

Changing up your accessories for the season can give you a whole new look. My lavender is growing so fast and the aroma fills up my “comfortable place”.

English Ivy

Just a few seasonal changes can make such a big difference. My next project is new patio furniture and a couple of new grills. I can see outdoor cooking videos in my future!

Easter Is Upon Us!

I can’t believe it but Easter Is Upon Us. Soon I’m having the Theodore family over for dinner. They are such dear friends and they’re moving soon. I thought it would be great to have them over for a nice dinner together with an Easter theme. They have two children, Story and Jake, so I wanted the atmosphere to be kid-friendly too.

I thought the table centerpiece should SCREAM” sweetness! Also, I believe there should always be a basket of colorful Easter eggs waiting in the wings. Most importantly, the outdoors should say, “Springtime is here”. The menu will feature #Spring vegetables and a very berry dessert, my Apricot And Blueberry Crumble.
