It's starting to feel like spring in Sutter Creek. One of my favorite things to decorate with this time of year is blossom branches. Although they only last for a week or so they are a wonderful cure for Spring Fever. If blossoms are not available on your property I recommend asking a friend or neighbor for permission to cut - on occasion I will pull off to the side of the road and snip a few branches. Never cross a fence line - but I think blossoms growing on the shoulder of the road are just begging to go home with you! Another recommendation - carry a pair of pruning shears in your car - they come in handy for random harvesting of blossom branches, pussy willows or other roadside finds.




Warm sunshine streaming into the shop!




Real daffodils will be coming soon!!!

    What a great idea! Carry pruning shears. Think I will follow the suggestion.
    Take care.

  2. Have fun finding roadside clippings. Pussy willows are great - they are usually out in February and March in our area and grow along creeks. Take care!

  7. I just came by from Maria's and how happy I am that you have a blog! I have been to your shop several times. I live about 40 mins away in the valley. We always stop by on our way home from Pine Grove Indian Grinding Rock because your shop is a favorite of mine! I have bought seeds, paper white bulbs, urns, pots, soaps, etc. And one day when I have grandbabies I will buy your wonderful items for children. Welcome to the blogging community. ox
