We had a nice weekend of mostly relaxation, however, we did spend some time digging out some garden boxes and getting ready for Spring planting. There's something so wonderful about working outside when there's a nip in the air and a frosty breeze. Max played in the dirt, ate some mud and absolutely adored being outside. Nothing tires a baby out like spending time in the sunshine.
I wanted to share some of the photos that I took from the Arcadia Edible Garden Tour a couple of weeks ago. It was absolutely freezing, but oh so beautiful, and luckily the rain held off the entire day. Husband and I are usually working the market at Sweet Life Garden, but this year we got to visit a few of the garden's before heading over to help man the tables. Wow!
These gardeners put their heart and souls into these amazing creations and it's so inspiring! We came away with a whole new vision of the possibilities of edible gardens and what plans we have for our own property. To attend is to be awed and inspired, and makes me so grateful for each and every one of these owners who put so much time and love into their gardens, and open their gates to so many hundreds of eager onlookers. Enjoy!

I have to admit, I have a few more photos here because, well these are my parents and I grew up here. Also, I promised my mom I would take a lot of photos. Plus, I just really, really like them :)
These are my pretty sisters
These lights are handmade by my husband and can be purchased on our Etsy Shop. Soon I'll be sharing our new dining room chandelier that he made as well. He's so talented!
