~Inspired by Springtime & Simple and Sweet Fridays #164~

~ Lemon Beehive Cake~
I have had Bees on my mind lately.
There's so many in our garden and I wanted to 
decorate and make sweet things with honey for Spring!!
I had fun making a Spring vignette with Bees too!!
I saw this whimsical Nordic Ware Beehive Cake Pan at Williams Sonoma and had to buy it.
I found the delicious
Lemon Cake recipe online at their site too.
I love lemons and honey.
What's not to like about this recipe!
Williams Sonoma also had the cutest 
sweet sugar bees to put on the cake!
I just couldn't decide what cake plate to put it on.
Spring is Here!!
I've collected things over the years with a 
Bee theme.
So I loved putting them all together for the
vignette.
I found this banner paper at Michael's Craft Store.
I didn't even have to cut them out.
I just wrote out Spring with a chalkboard pen.
Easy Peasy!!
Fresh Sunflowers from the Farmer's Market.
I had these cute bee stamps I found at Michael's too!
~An Anthropologie Plate~
~A Bee Skep~
I made a bee candle with tissue paper.
Lemon drop candies in a honey jar fit right into the vignette theme.
 
I found this bee embroidered sheet paper at Papyrus. 
It makes a great runner.
~Bee-autiful~
A new bee stepping stone I found at Home Goods for the garden.
A bee mug from a friend.
Bee Tea Towel and Mini Spatulas
from Williams Sonoma
A little Sage Honeycomb with Brie for dessert.

~New Variety of Flowers~

I love looking for new flowers and plants for the garden.
So many different varieties that I've never seen before.

I always love pansies and violas.
When I have the time,
 I try and press flowers between newspapers.
That way they'll be dry and I can use them for projects in the future.


The kids made pancakes with edible flowers this weekend.
Almost too pretty to eat!
I stamped wooden labels for plants.

I looked through our plant seeds.
We always try and save what we can.
Stan planted tomatoes, zucchini, squashes and more.
We cleared out a section for new tomatoes. 
Looking forward to fresh garden veggies.
Artichokes are still doing well.

Enough for everyone for dinner.
I started growing some sprouts for salads and sandwiches. 
~In 3 Days~
In one week,
 it filled the jar.
It was great on a sandwich.
Our peony bloomed this week.


I wish the blooms could last forever.
I picked out some new plants at the nursery.
They're drought tolerant.
~Salvia Gauranitica~
'Black and Blue'
~Salvia Spathacea~
'Hummingbird Sage'
~Veronica Spicata~
'Royal Candles'
I love finding new plants for the garden.
Another surprise sighting,
our garden rabbit!!
