It's getting to that time of year here on the west coast where the crocus are just peeking out of the earth and buds are appearing on the trees. One of my favourite times. The idea of forcing a few branches has been on my mind lately as I long for warmer weather and new things. Style at Home's March issue has inspired me even more with these beautiful photo's of blossoms against beautiful dark blue backgrounds. (The magazine is available online here).
