I know we’re all in more of a holiday frame of mind, and I do hate to bum out the holly jolly vibe, but just for a moment, I need to get an urgent message out to all my gardening buds – don’t forget to plant your spring bulbs!  I think this may be our last chance. With so much going on at Connecticut Country House this fall, I had given up on this annual task.  But the next few days are forecast to be just like spring – in the 60’s here in Connecticut – so no matter what, I need to take advantage of these fine conditions.

I’ll let you in on another scoop.  Since the summer, we’ve been super busy shooting the seasons – inside and out – here at Connecticut Country House.  Our mission: A fabulous lifestyle book! Summer and fall photography is totally done – gorgeousness is just about all I can say about that. Now we’re smack dab in the midst of shooting Christmas and winter.  And of course, you guessed it, we finish up with spring.  And having to plan so far in advance, I have to think about, and better have, a glorious – camera-ready – turnout of happy little faced daffodils (one of my very favorites) for Spring 2013!

So, as you can see, I’m operating in two worlds right now.  Tomorrow, I’ll be on my hands and knees (covered in mud – oh, joy, can’t wait), planting some springtime beauty-to-come, and later in the day snipping and tying white pine and balsam into yards of hearty garland!

Welcome to my weird world.  Happy Monday!

Love, Nora

  • Ah! The life of a Gardener. I’ll be waiting to hear about the book launch. Of all the people I know, you are the perfect person to put together that style book. There will of course be seasonal cookie recipes to go with it, or is that the next project? Good luck with it all. xoxo
