A Fresh Start!


The Holidays at the Shop are behind me and I have a Little time on My Hands! Thinking to Myself, What I needed was a Fresh Start for the New Year! Every few Years I pull out my Favorite Childhood Book The Secret Garden, and Gave it a Read! Just the inspiration I was looking for!


As I wandered around my Garden, I found bulbs beginning to peek through the Earth!
 I found an Old Potting Table needing a New Life!


 In the Green House I have Tiny French Seeding Pots I can never seem to Collect enough of!
I Began Gathering up all the Empty Pots and Containers around The Garden I could find, just Begging to be Planted!

At the Local Nurseries there were Six Packs a Plenty of all my Favorite Flowers!


I've been collecting Bulbs to plant for a few months now, to Pot up for the Shop this Spring!


  I set up a Potting Area in the Sunshine and Decided to Have a Play Day!


Then..... I noticed My Beautiful Myrtle Wreath from Christmas was ready for a Makeover!


I had all the Supplies I needed Right in  front of me! Cutting Pieces of Twine and Threading them through the hole in the bottom of the Tiny French Pots, I began to Tie them Helter Skelter around the Wreath. Making sure there were a few Upright Pots to add Flowers to!



I added a Ribbon Remnant and filled the Pots with Mini Yellow Pansies from Six Packs, Moss and a Few Daffodil bulbs! (Those I'll have to Plant later).


 It's beginning to Rain now... So, All those Bulbs, and Flowers, and Pots will wait for Another Sunny Day!

I Love The Feeling this Wreath Evokes, a Feeling of New Beginnings and All that I love! Happy New Year to Everyone! May it be Filled with New Beginnings and Promise of a Good Year!
