Do spring May flowers.  Thomas Tusser, an English poet and farmer, penned this quote in the mid-16th century, as part of his instructional poem Five Hundred Points of Good Husbandry…  and the phrase is still used today to give us hope when skies are gray.

While waiting for spring flowers to spring, we’ve been enjoying Veranda’s 31 Days of Flowers and loved all the pretty posies popping up daily in our Facebook feed during the month of March.  Ironically, we’re putting the finishing touches on our new Fall/Winter 2014 collection so our SAD (Seasonal Adjustment Disorder) takes on a whole new dimension – trying to come up with Christmas bouquets now that spring is here is easier said than done…  Needless to say, we’re so over winter!

Springing into Spring

Spring is finally springing in these parts though it will be a while before we see any sign of crocus or snowdrops.  Perhaps the snow is melting a bit faster down south but not for us so we’ll have to get our spring on in other ways.

The first day of spring (tomorrow!) is always an exciting time at Diane James Home as we finally unveil our new designs online for all to see and buy.  This year, not only have we added 25 new bouquets, plants and orchids from our “couture” collection, but we’re launching our new “ready-to-wear” line called BLOOMS…  Just as pretty, a little less pricey!  Bloomingdales.com still has the exclusive rights some pieces until summer but you’ll be able to purchase the other 14 designs under the BLOOMS category in our store.

Spring Fever!

"Garden" by Sally Semonite Green

"Garden" by Sally Semonite Green

A little bird, he told me so
He said come on, get on the go
Open your eyes the sky is full of butterflies
The blossoms on the trees stir up the honey bees
Spring makes my fever right

Spring fever, spring is here at last
Spring fever, my heart’s beating fast
Get up, get out spring is everywhere…

Elvis Presley
(words and music by Giant, Baum and Kaye)

Happy Spring!
