Sunday greetings to you, and welcome to my Mitten Moments!

We have had exceptional weather for the last couple of weeks, here in the Mitten. Above average temps with lots and lots of sunshine! I’m soaking it all in because if you are a Michigander, you know that the weather can change drastically in a matter of minutes!

My Personal Mitten Moments

My precious granddaughter and I dove into the magical world of fairy gardens, this past week. If you’re looking for a meaningful activity to engage in with your grandchild, the children in your life, or you just simply want to add a touch of whimsy to your own garden, creating a fairy garden is such a fun project to do!

If you aren’t sure where to begin when it comes to making your own, check out my post How to Make a Fairy Garden, for all my tips!

By the way, I’m a huge Tinker Bell fan, so this fairy garden DIY is right up my alley!

“When I was a really young child, I felt like I could see fairies. I was convinced there were fairies in my grandmother’s garden.” – Noel Fielding

My roses have started blooming and I couldn’t be happier! The process of seeing your rose bushes grow and develop buds, and then eventually witnessing those buds open up into vibrant, colorful blooms, can be a truly rewarding experience for any gardener or anyone who just appreciates flowers.

I have the prettiest Doris Day, which is a yellow rose. It seems to have doubled in size since last summer.

I’m in the market for a pink rose and a white rose. Anyone have a favorite or any suggestions to pass along? If so, I would be so grateful if you leave me a message below!

Being a blogger means you think ahead for the different holidays. Sometimes, way ahead! If you missed it, this week on the blog, I shared How to Set a Red, White, and Blue Table. Not only did I share but 10 of my blogging friends shared their inspiring patritotic posts, too!

A Few Of My Favorite Moments

Do you love lemons? How about zucchini? I’m a big fan of both and if you are too, wait until you read this! My friend, Nicolle from Our Tiny Nest shared The Best Lemon Zucchini Bread. Yep! Both amazing flavors in one bread.

We are growing zucchini’s in our family garden and I you can bet I’m going to make this!

My friend Rachel from The Ponds Farmhouse is so creative! She created the prettiest DIY Metal Wreath: A Trendy Anthropolgy Hack, earlier this week.

You’ll never believe what she made her flowers out of!

Let’s hear it for sweet and salty!! A favorite combo of mine, so when Yvonne from StoneGable shared her Barely Baked Chocolate Chip Cookies With Sea Salt, I knew I had to make you aware of it, too!

  1. I love faries and fairy gardens. My niece has one and we frequently add to it. This is a wonderful thing to do with your granddaughter.

    Love these links, I cannot wait to make the zucchini bread. And the cookies!

    Have a wonderful and safe week.

  2. Kim, ss you know I too love fairy gardens. I just finished mine this week. As for a fantastic pink rose you should try the Queen Elizabeth. My grandmother had one in front of her porch that grew to 9 feet tall. When she moved to assisted living she had me transplant it to my house. I moved it multiple times and it continued to thrive. It is a pink Grandiflora and has won many awards including “World’s Favorite Rose” in 1979. It is my all time favorite. If you plant one you will have to let me cut a few roses…lol.

  3. All the beautiful pics. It is such a lovely time of year. Love the gardening goodie’s, and the links! The Zucchini bread looks delicious. Hopefully you will have a bumper crop and harvest before the critters get them!

  4. My roses are just about to pop too. I can’t wait. I lost my white rose to a virus this spring, sadly. I might have to go yellow when I replace it.
