Eeep! I can’t believe it’s mid-September already!
I had a bunch of projects and work to attend to at the end of last month and although I had scheduled a few blog posts during that time, I failed to offer personalized replies to many of your wonderful comments (although I did leave a general message on each entry). I just wanted to let you all know that I really, really appreciate all the feedback on Flowery Prose, and please do keep those comments coming – I love to read your insights and experiences! Going forward, I will strive to be a bit more timely and dedicated to commenting – both here and on all of your amazing blogs!
On to the links…I have a nice eclectic mix for you this month:
Kerry posted this on her blog Love Those “Hands at Home” way back in July but I think these cooler days of late summer/early autumn might be the perfect time to make these amazing balsam pillows – I absolutely love her reuse of vintage linens and I am dreaming about that splendid fragrance….
This post about seed-saving from LifeoftheOriginalHortBabe is very timely for those of us in the northern hemisphere, and full of excellent advice!
Are you trying to get your fall (or spring?) cleaning done, and doing a bit of organizing in your kitchen while you’re at it? This essay will perhaps make you rethink the necessity of having a perfectly tidy spice cabinet – and it will definitely make you smile! (Check out Margot’s blog while you’re at it!).
Pure eye candy: Time-lapse photography of cacti blooming. Love this!
Fun, whimsical flower art: These drawings by artist Jesuso Ortiz are a mixed-media delight!
This wonderful post about Harvard University’s Ware Collection of Glass Models of Plants is a fantastic read! Don’t miss the links at the very bottom of the entry; you’ll be forwarded to more photos and information about the collection.
Finally…I’m not sure why anyone would outfit a squirrel with a GoPro camera, but if you want to take a breakneck journey through the treetops from a squirrel’s perspective, you can – just click here for the video. As expected, it’s a bit on the dizzying side. Now, if only the little critters would stay in the trees instead of digging up my newly-planted bulbs….
A few add-ons –
Book “reviews” from my other blog The Door is Ajar:
Gillian Flynn – Gone Girl.
Joe Fiorito – Rust is a Form of Fire.
Don Gutteridge – Coming Home.
And my yummy recipe Green Beans with Chervil from Grit.com.
Enjoy the rest of your month! ♥
