I haven't made an Easter basket in many a year. But there is a wee one in our family now, so the wheat berries have been soaked and planted in a little basket. These sweet ones are waiting for the grass to grow, so they can hop in and surprise the cutest little girl in the world.

I saw this at Dottie Angel. Who knew a funky, plastic, gold candelabra from 1971 would have this kind of potential. When I saw her Thrifty Tuesday post, I remembered all of those gold plastic numbers I have passed over, even mocked, on my thrifting adventures! Well, now I was on a quest. This set of candelabras was the first set I saw since my epiphany. They were listed at $2.95 for the pair. However, all GREEN tags were half off. Yippee. With a can of paint I already had on hand, I saved them from my mocking, because now, I LOVE them. A lot.

I know this isn't what gnomes really look like. But I know I believe in their existence. I see their work in the garden everyday. Just yesterday I was digging a new patch for the blueberries, as I reached below the surface, the soil was rich and dark and filled with worms. I immediately gave the gnomes their do! Thanks for tending the earth regal gnomes! I keep these silly renderings of gnomes in the garden to help me remember the work that is happening below the topsoil. It is a partnership, me and the gnomes.

She is bursting forth in our garden. I peek out the window while doing inside chores, just to see the yellows and purples and reds and whites. It is perfect. All abloom and I have done very little, save for blessing the rain and welcoming it with open arms. Even Lady Spring has welcomed the rain, her mossy hairpiece amid the camellias.
