A pretty besom

To greet 'Spring' and welcome her blooms, I've prettied up the decorative besom on my front door.

There aren't any natural blossoms around here just yet, but these Petaloo pretties do the trick. Most of the blooms used on this piece are from their Botanica line. Aren't they gorgeous?!

There was one last hurrah of snow yesterday (fingers crossed it was the last!) but it can't be long before we throw open the windows and breathe in some fresh spring air.

I am waiting (not so) patiently for the little wild violets to bloom and the lily of the valley to arrive but for now I'm just glad to be looking out over a wet green landscape.

Do you have a true and proper spring where you are?


  1. Very springy. Those flowers are beautiful! We are having a proper spring now and I have violets blooming in my yard. I'm in Meridian, Idaho, just a ways south of you....

  2. Lovely and appropriate for this long cool spring!

  3. Those flowers are lovely! We are having a true and proper Pacific Northwest Spring... a day or two of sun and now it's going to rain for the foreseeable future... lolz... ^_^
    Ah well... we'll get our sunshine this Summer.
    I hope that snow was the last you'll see until this coming Winter! =D
