Spring is approaching ... today is the first warmish day, a good day to step outside and do some shopping or go for a walk. It will be a while before we can be dancing among the Spring flowers, but it's coming. It is true, Canadians are obsessed with the weather......when will all this snow melt, and when will it be Spring? I hope the weather is beautiful where you live.

At this time, we all hope for World peace, and an end to a senseless War. The World is still battling Covid, and now THIS.

seeds sprouting

March is the month to start your flowers seeds indoors, I usually start Sweet Peas and Morning glories indoors. Every available table near our south-facing windows is usually covered in seed trays. Our Northern Ontario growing season is so short,  which is why we have to start some seeds indoors.

These Garden Rose blooms are lovely, and a lot of hard work goes into producing them. If you are looking for an easy Rose, try Drift Roses. https://www.driftroses.com/

Thinking of Travelling? 

Our fav go-to is Vera Bradley's Large Traveller Duffel bag, in an easy-to-clean Classic Navy, and we also stock a soft grey. It is soft-sided, folds flat when not in use, and meets cabin baggage size requirements. It has 2 pockets at each end, zippered closure, and wide straps which are long enough to fit easily over your shoulder. $139.00+hst.

Alligator skin....it looks great on a handbag, but not so great when it's what your skin looks like. What can you do for Dry skin relief? My go-to's are Uncle Benny's Shea butter, and Neob Lavender's organic Pure Lemongrass cream.
