Green Thumb and Dress.

Sometimes Gracefully Sometimes Gracefully

I’ve been loving the warmer temperatures here in Minneapolis, but I haven’t entirely been loving the mucky and slushy streets that come with the melting snow. In the summers, our view from our apartment isn’t bad: green grass, the Mississippi River, and the 35W Bridge that lights up at night. But when the weather is “not quite winter” and “not quite spring,” our apartment view Β looks out onto a whole lot of mud. So I’m ready for gardening season, everybody. Bring on the beautiful floral colors and plump fruits and vegetables.

Sometimes Gracefully

I’ll admit that I’ve never been much of a gardener. I remember having to keep a plant alive in my 6th grade science class, and the entire process somewhat negatively tainted my desire to garden. School can do that to a kid. My mom had a tomato plant that she tended to during the summers, but my love for tomatoes isn’t as grand as my love for, say, watermelon, so I wasn’t too fascinated by her tomato plant when there was watermelon in the fridge. However, I’m thinking that it would be nice to populate my home with fresh flowers and “no-fuss” vegetable plants. Once Darrin and I are able to finally own a house, I’d love to have a small garden in the backyard. Fresh vegetables are so good. Especially fresh cucumbers. With a little salt, pepper, and Ranch dressing. Hello Summer.

Sometimes Gracefully

What about you? Do you have a garden? Love gardening? Hate gardening? If you know of any great apartment plants, send them my way! It’s about time the tiny Beekman apartment got a spring makeover! πŸ™‚

The dress I’m wearing above is old from Anthropologie, but they’ve got so many fun spring dresses right now in so many gorgeously bold spring colors that I thought I’d share my favorites down below!

Hope you have a great day!

    I usually have a little garden, but I go straight for the “no-fuss” vegetables like zucchini. I don’t tend to actually pay a lot of attention to my own garden….but I like to eat the veggies!

    You look gorgeous! I love these photos! Green is my favorite color, not much on my thumb though, but I try. Haha.
