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.
Stay-at-home mom, Serena Thompson, dreamed of creating a fun and happy little event to sell her vintage and handmade goods. In 2002, she and some friends held the first event in her neighbor’s barn. The sale became wildly popular and began attracting visitors from across the country and recognition in national magazines. Today the event fills the Spokane County Fairgrounds and features hundreds of creatively and carefully curated spaces filled with vintage and handmade goods. Many describe it as a bucket list event, magical, inspirational, and the best vintage & handmade fair in the country. Serena describes it as the happiest on earth.
