Best of the Web + Spring Flowers

For the first time this week, we had a few days in a row where the sun was shining and temperatures got into the mid-sixties! I had meetings in the city this week on those beautiful days, so this weekend I’m planning on getting outside, walking around Lake Minnewaska and doing some work around the yard to clean up for spring planting. In that spirit, I wanted to wrap up this week with one of the incredible photos from our growing #DSFloral feed. I love when a hashtag challenge takes on a life of its own, and there are close to 50,000 photos in this floral feed now! This photo was taken by Mary Ellen at Steel Cut Flower Co. and it’s been on my desktop for days now. Here’s hoping spring flowers join us here up north soon! xo, grace

    OMG that Hickory Nut Gap Farm was literally about 20 minutes away from my college and I almost went there so many times. Now I wish I had hopped on those ~almost~ chances!
