sunshine is finally here!

Michigan Mays are always a total gamble.  Last week it got so cold, I could see my breath while walking Conrad.  And my basil, which I foolishly planted in a pot on my back porch, is completely burned to a crisp by the late night frosts.  But I can replant new basil because the sun is out!  And maybe I can plant my garden soon too.  Pepper plants, zucchini seeds, and carrot seeds are waiting in the wings, and soon the farmers market will have heirloom tomato plants.
Right now, I'm dreaming of hosting garden parties with this cart...
And I'd wear this dress...
