Friday Favorites

Happy First Day of Spring!!  It’s only appropriate to post my favorite flowers today.  I love flowers.  I’m girly like that.  I grew up with parents who always had the prettiest garden on the block.  I remember people would drive by, turn around and ask for a tour of the gardens.  One of my favorite childhood memories is coming home from school on the bus and seeing my mom weeding and dad watering his one hundred and something rose bushes.  I don’t quite have the green thumb like the parentals, but let’s just say that I try 🙂

  • Tulips:  Tulips are one of the first Spring flowers to bloom.  I love their simplicity.  Click here to learn how to grow tulips in a glass jar year round.  I will definitely be trying it!


  • Peonies:  Banana Republic used to make a perfume called Peonies.  It was the absolute best!  They don’t make it anymore which is heartbreaking because I haven’t found a peonies perfume I like since then.  I came across this perfume from Jo Malone that I am anxious to try though.  I love the sophisticated look of peonies.  What I’m trying to say is, what is there not to love about peonies?!


  • Lilly of the Valley:  How can such a delicate, tiny, bell-shaped flower smell so amazing?! One of my mom’s corner gardens was all lilly of the valley.  It smelt absolutely divine!  Beware: these little flowers spread like crazy, but what a beautiful shade flower they make.


It’s supposed to be in the 70’s today so I intend on spending as much time outdoors as possible.  Have a lovely day!

Love, Rach
