It’s snowing…

This is the kind of snow one likes to see during springtime…

Petal snow!…

The thicker the drifts, the better…

You don’t need a shovel for these drifts. Just take a deep breath, enjoy the fragrance of spring and let the gentle warm breeze make the petals fall…

A rainy spell…

We have been experiencing a rainy spell here in Minnesota…

It has been going on for days. I think we are all missing the sun right about now but rain does have its advantages…

It makes the whole world look like it has been covered with little bits of shimmering crystals…

Little droplets of rain can turn even the tiniest blade of grass into a creation that rivals the most brilliant diamond necklace…don’t you agree?

 Or maybe a ruby necklace in this case…

Blossomedge is going to be undergoing some changes in the next week or so, getting ready for the new Fall season! I apologize for any odd things or any inconsistencies that may occur while viewing my blog right now…

My floral cookie tutorials are going to begin very soon. I’m going to start them off with an adorable floral cookie bouquet, perfect for giving that favorite teacher when school starts…

See you then!…
