No need to recite the catch phrase “April showers…,” you get the picture. After the ugly season has passed (that’s what I call winter), lovely spring is upon us. Watching the grass green up and the tulips come into bloom is a welcome sight.
It’s around this same time that I prep my flowerpots, throw down a new outdoor rug, and splash a fresh paint color on my wooden bench, breathing new life into my home’s entryway. If you’ve followed along with me throughout the years, you know I paint my bench quite regularly. Chris Stout-Hazard from Roger+Chris puts it perfectly in this issue’s Double Heart Farm article, “You’re allowed to change your mind.” Read the story on page 3.
This issue, we also spotlight talented floral designer Brittany Black, who makes a career out of sprucing up front entries and home exteriors all over town for Vickie Lea Designs. We provide a peek inside Denise Meyers’ cherished she shed, which she has filled with family mementos and farmhouse touches, and also give some sage advice about foraging for delicious wild berries in Nebraska. There are several home renovations and artsy interiors featured as well that are sure to inspire your own home improvements or wall decor game.
Even as you’re busy with projects this month, don’t forget to spoil your mom this Mother’s Day, May 8th. Some of the greatest gifts cost next to nothing, and time with her is one of the best you can to give. For me, a meaningful card always goes a long way. A gift card to support her hobby, or a beautiful bouquet of fresh spring tulips are other ideas that will show you care and surely warm her heart.
