A sneak peek at what’s next

IMG_8494Monday’s Leap Day marked the end of February and brought to a close our special blog “blizzard.” Whew, what a month! I hope you found our flurry of growing-related posts useful and informative.

*If you haven’t already voted for the Better Homes and Gardens’ Blogger Awards today, I’d love to have your vote.*

The goal of the February blog blizzard was to load you up with lots of information and tips to help you grow a bountiful, beautiful garden this season. Readers asked a ton of follow-up questions and we’re setting aside some special time this week to go back through and answer many of your queries as possible. The level of commenting far exceeded our expectations and we quickly fell behind on responding. You guys are amazing and please, stay tuned for answers!

IMG_8435We will continue to post flower-related information and inspiration in this space, but know the pace will definitely slow down a bit, since our growing season is beginning to ramp up.  There are still a ton of ideas for future posts in the hopper and I can’t wait to share them with you.

For example, tomorrow I’ll be posting a review and giveaway of Ariella Chezar’s new book, The Flower Workshop, so be sure to check back on that. In the coming weeks, I also plan to revamp the Flower Focus series, highlighting some tools of the trade, plus dive into some wedding floral-related topics.  There will be lots of pretty posts to come, I promise!

IMG_8748Over the weekend, the Floret team and I locked ourselves in my dining room to put our heads together for some serious strategizing, plotting and power planning. During the three long days, we consumed massive quantities of coffee and chocolate while we dreamed and schemed ideas for the future of Floret. Our little mind hive was littered with post-it notes, notebooks, planners, books, maps, calendars (all the way into 2018!) and toys as baby Felix crawled (and even toddled!) around at our feet.

It was an exciting, exhilarating and exhausting process which left our minds feeling like applesauce. We’ve got so many wonderful things in store for the future of this little flower company and I can’t wait to share more about them soon. Thanks so much for your thoughtful feedback, enthuastic support (and votes).

Whipping Our Foursquare Home’s Exterior Back Into Shape

Though it's been a little quiet on the blog lately, we've been very hard at work on several ongoing house projects. 

The most major of our projects has been our focus on the overall exterior appearance of our Foursquare. As a realtor, I'm keenly aware of curb appeal, and how small differences on the exterior of your home can truly set the tone for how you feel on the interior of your home. But as an owner of a house with wood siding, a large yard, and a lot of plantings around the house, I know what an overwhelming endeavor it can be to stay on top of those items that impact the curb appeal of your home. 

In our case, I'm not so concerned about what people driving or walking by our home think. Instead I'm more concerned with how the curb appeal makes me feel, or how it makes our visitors approaching the house feel. I want our home's exterior to set a tone of relaxation for all of our visitors, and it's hard to feel relaxed when you approach a yard of long unkempt grass, flower beds full of weeds, and significant sections of cracked or peeling paint on the house. After all, it's our goal to have more relaxing evenings like this.

This summer we've decided to approach the curb appeal and exterior maintenance of our home in three distinct phases.
