April Round Up on Flower Patch


Here we are in May, with it’s unpredictable weather.
One day we are whipping out the shorts and tanks tops and the next we are tossing on cozy sweaters and jeans again.
But it will level out to mostly sunny and warm before we know it.
April was a very busy month and productive too. 
Spring cleaning was on everyone’s mind.  I love clean windows, to me it just makes everything else seem to shine.
I started the month with a few tips and tricks to make window cleaning faster and easier.

Life is crazy and I rarely get to finish a project in one fell swoop but I did get another riser painted.

I have been pleasantly surprised at the positive response to my art and sales have been brisk.
You Are Stronger Than You Seem SignHave you tried my BUTTERMILK PANCAKES yet?
They are to die for.
I am always a hero when I make them.
Homemade Buttermilk PancakesOf course, I had my MONDAY INSPIRATIONS all month long.
Not sure how I got hooked on doing that but I have enjoyed hunting down photos to add inspirational quotes to among my vast library.

I already have sugar snap peas going and my tomatoes are going strong in the greenhouse.
I have been letting the chickens free range and scratch up some areas I plan to plant in so they are getting a good going over.
I will be sure to share as I can.

  1. Just a note to say I love your blog. I don’t keep up to date with very many blogs anymore for lack of time, just a handful really, but I always read yours the moment I log on in the morning. Love peeking into your country life. Sure wish I had your kind of weather. Ours went from unseasonably chilly to HOT overnight. Literally, it was overnight. So I will enjoy your summer flowers (which, if we can grow them at all bloom in early spring here) and your further adventures with your painting projects and your stairs. Thanks so much for sharing!

    1. I am so glad you find some refreshment here. I do love Calif. milder weather. Though it has been a little weird the past few years and it looks to be a bad fire year. Last year the Rim fire made Aug quite miserable because of the heavy smoke outside. I will be sure to continue sharing as much as I can.

  2. Great post! I would love it if you joined and contribute your awesome posts at my link party at City of Creative Dreams on Fridays 😀 Hope to see you there at City of Creative Dreams Link Party
