It just makes me want to forget the world, drink a cup of coffee and relax!
It's nice to dream!!

May is spectacular! Shooting Stars, Trilliums, Wild Phlox, Violets, Mayapples, Bleeding Hearts, these are only a few of my spring flowers blooming! I have been photographing many of them and will be sharing some with you.
Virginia Blue BellsI have a beautiful woodland path that I started the day we moved into our home 24 years ago! Being a hiker most of my life I wanted to be able to walk through a path everyday finding surprises at every glance!
Wildflowers are amazing and I decided to only incorporate plants that would be found in our natural woodland here in NJ and the surrounding area. I quickly found out that wildflowers are extremely picky about their habitat, and through alot of reading and experimenting I finally have a beautiful path that blooms from February through November. Some of my favorite flowers that are in bloom now are Virginia Blue Bells and a Violet called 'Freckles'. I have freckles too, so this quickly became one of my favorites!
Inspired by the nature that surrounds me, I love to create items that incorporate natural and recycled materials. This blog is my first and is still evolving by the minute!! But, I hope to combine these interests in nature and crafts to provide a place where I can share my thoughts, handcrafted items, tips and maybe even insprire you to look at the nature around you differently!
