May flowers and Mother's Day

Right on cue, April showers turned to May flowers last week!   In this part of Michigan, it's too early to plant annuals, but flowering bulbs and perennials are alive with color.  Daffodils just finished blooming. The bleeding heart by my front walk is looking sweet in pink today.  And the fresh green of spring is everywhere. bleeding.heart Mother's Day is Sunday.  If you are still looking for a gift, a bud vase made right here in Ann Arbor from recycled silverware is just right for a special spring flower (or even a dandelion that the kids pick). SONY DSC We also have a fresh selection of  colorful flower pins, handcrafted from old zippers! zipper.pins.colors If Mom likes to garden, she might like this vintage gardening book. What about this vintage nursery chalkboard sign?  It would be fun to hang this near your garden or on a covered porch! flower.board The Ann Arbor Farmers Market will have lots of Mother's Day flowers this Saturday.  Once again this year, photographer Myra Klarman will be taking free portraits with mom in the outside market area Saturday morning from 10-noon.  Her lovely informal shots in the Farmers Market are always special.  The prints will be available for pickup in Kerrytown after May 25th. On Mother's Day, the Sunday Artisans Market has a wonderful lineup of artists and entertainment scheduled from 11 a.m. in the Farmer's Market area. FOUND is so fortunate to have this Artisan's Market on Sundays AND the Farmers Market on Saturdays and Wednesdays right outside our windows! We're thankful for Spring Flowers and for Moms!  Enjoy these beautiful Spring days.
