Those of you who are in the Northeast (and especially in the Boston area) must get how we feel about winter this time of year… The seasonal adjustment disorder has set in and we’re definitely feeling SAD. As we mentioned on Wednesday, pinning is a good cure for the cold weather blues but so is shopping. And we don’t have to put down our
wine glass hot cocoa and leave the house to do either! So why not banish the wind chill with some chic blue (for our mood) and white (for the snow), a favorite color combination for many bloggers we know, and end the week with a smile.

The strangest thing has happened to our wisteria… After ten years of no blooms, it’s finally decided to blossom! We always thought that the landscaper made a mistake and planted the non-flowering variety (if there is such a thing) and gave up on ever seeing the lovely purple-hued petals dripping from the vine. The plant, on the other hand, has thrived and has taken over our second floor deck, reaching its tendrils from the south side of the house to the west. And now that the plant is getting full sun, it’s covered in blooms. That’s because wisteria needs full sun to bloom… Duh!

So needless to say, we’re enjoying our wisteria blossoms and looking for a new landscaper!

Just when we thought we were coming to the end of the regatta season, summer rowing is underway and the races will take us all over the map. The boys have had their fill of hanging out at the boat trailer playing games (sadly on their iPhones and not real board games!) so perhaps they might enjoy a round of Which Came First? Are you ready to play along? Which came first, the cabinet…

The Buzz turns three this month and who knew when we launched this blog that we would be so ahead of the trend by expressing our love for the color green in our very first post (despite our black thumbs!)
It seems that everywhere we turn, people are talking about this springtime color. From House Beautiful‘s entire March issue, to the cover of Veranda‘s new book and all through Wisteria’s spring catalog, green is getting lots of love! Sorry, Kermit, despite what you think, it’s easy being green…
