DIY Mini Garden Flower Arrangement : Rose, Geranium, Parsley and Chive

I’ve had my eye on these garlic chive flowers for the past few weeks and now they are just beginning to open! I love the cute star-light quality of these flowers and feel they add such a nice detail to arrangements. I’ve really enjoyed having these flowers on my table, the colours and shapes feel so cheery together. The pink of this geranium is absolutely stunning too!

Lime-Balm-Plant---Bit-Square-BlogA Lime Balm plant I got from Kmart! I never knew there was such a thing. Can’t wait to try this as a tea later in the season (imagine it’s good with fruit salad too).

I’ve been spending quite a bit of time in the garden lately (as I’m sure you can tell from all these pics here and from earlier this week too!). I’ve definitely been enjoying the warmer weather lately and loving seeing so much colour about again. Hope you have a great weekend!

Spring To-Do List

Spring-Daisies SImple Floral ArrangmentFloating spring daisies after this week’s  iPhone wallpaper shoot.

Even though it’s a few weeks into spring already, I thought I put together a list of somethings I really wanted to make sure I did during the season. I find it’s so easy for the seasons to slip by me without feeling like I really get to appreciate and celebrate what they have to offer.

  • Learn to make paper flowers (I really want to do this online course).
  • Make my first ever spring garland from something bright and colourful (perhaps from my paper flowers).
  • Fresh asparagus from the garden with homemade hollandaise.
  • Decorate a pumpkin for Halloween.
  • Create a little fern garden for my desk (inspired by this book here).
  • Make or buy a pair of simple, bright apple-green earrings.
  • Buy peony roses from the local market.
  • Find a pretty, light, floral cardigan.
  • Start making some things from my Frozen Sweets pinterest board. Also look for ideas to add to my Spring board.
  • Organise my photos from the past year and print out a few to put into albums.

What do you have planned for this Spring (or Autumn if your in Northern Hemisphere)?
