april vintage

with gardening at the top of my favorite things to do list and the farmers market opening soon, sunshine finally making its way to the days and the light staying longer, i feel more light hearted-- suddenly i become more attuned to color and aromas of the earth.... can't wait to smell the lavender growing in my garden...
