We’re finally in the last week of February and spring is just four weeks away…  That means we’ll be coming out of hibernation and actually saying yes to social events, and planning some of our own.

It’s time to put away the holiday themed cards and invest in some springtime stationery to say thank you or wish someone a happy birthday.  Top on our list is the new line of pop-up, laser cut cards by our great friend and the queen of entertaining, Kim Seybert.

Mum’s the Word…

“Kiku in the Japanese Garden” opens today at The New York Botanical Garden and we can’t wait to catch a glimpse of the beautiful cascades, cones and columns of brilliantly hued chrysanthemums.  For the past two years, the Conservatory Courtyards have been transformed into a setting that evokes the gardens of Kyoto including undulating masses of ferns and perennials and the exquisitely handcrafted pavilions which showcase these amazing floral sculptures of kiku (Japanese for chrysanthemum).

The Botanical Garden experts work up to 11 months to grow, train and shape the kiku on display, and sadly, this is the last year these beautiful plants will be shown in this setting.  Luckily, we have found other mums to celebrate fall’s fleeting beauty!

Daffy for Daffodils!

While we’re on the subject of blooming bulbs, did you know that the birth flower for March is the daffodil?  These harbingers of spring are well-loved by all, even William Wordsworth…

“I wander’d lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.”
