I did a post @ my Happy Thoughts blog earlier in the season, take a look if you missed it.
I have a couple new pots of paperwhites and other bulbs from Smith&Hawken that I am planting this week- no plant deprivation for me this winter!
I had a favorite Aunt ( I was named after her) who had a great deal of joie de vivre. She had a way of living that celebrated in daily ways, and that made her a very charming person. She was also very accomplished, in almost everything she set her hand to, actually. She was a concert pianist, a smart business woman, and at one early point had worked for a hotel and could keep a home that Martha Stewart would have envied. I was always a little in awe of her.
