The wild apple blossoms are so beautiful right now. It’s the perfect time to gather a bunch and make a beautiful floral arrangement or two.

The remnants of our country’s early pioneer days are evident as you drive the roads near our home. It’s common to see wild apple trees and right now, they’re in full bloom. It’s such a beautiful time of the year. (When collecting roadside blossoms, my rule is to only take clippings from trees and plants that are on the roadside. Never over a fence, and never onto someone’s property, no matter how beautiful the blooms).

After gathering the wild apple blossoms today, I snipped a bit of these green roadside shrubs as well, for filler. I love the little white clusters.

I snipped the greens and apple blossoms and arranged them in my teapot for the perfect Sunday Drive Bouquet to enjoy through the week ahead.


In 2002, I was dreaming of creating a fun and happy little event to sell my vintage and handmade goods. In 2002, I held my first event in my neighbor's barn along with a handful of friends. The sale became wildly popular and began attracting visitors from across the country and recognition in national magazines. Today The Farm Chicks Vintage & Handmade Fair fills the Spokane County Fairgrounds and features hundreds of creatively and carefully curated spaces packed with vintage and handmade goods. Many describe it as a bucket list event, magical, inspirational, and the best event of its kind in the USA. I describe it as the best weekend of the year!
