think spring!

Today is the first day of March, and it’s a beautiful sunny day in my neighbourhood :D It is not officially spring yet, but I thought I’d share with you a few things that remind me of spring.

I’d like to do all my homework on these.

While it may be difficult to get these blooming chairs and tables from Iceland, growing an indoor lawn on our desks can be easy — by planting recycled t‑shirts! How awesome is that?

And now that we have an indoor lawn, we may need a garden gnome.

These indoor mushroom gardens are simply gorgeous. Made with the edible varieties bought from the market. They make lovely table centerpieces, I think.

But if you’re looking for mushrooms that won’t ever wilt and dry out, here are the true display variety.

And here we have the exceptionally sweet species — the meringue mushrooms. I find them so very intriguing. They even look like the real button mushrooms. Have you seen Martha’s mushroom cake? Magical, right? Seeing that I didn’t have a cake at my wedding, I think I must get one of these mushroom cakes for the upcoming anniversary.

There are lots of meringue mushrooms recipes on the world wide web but I like this one from Corner Cafe, because it shows how they’re piped. I’ve never piped anything before, so it will help if I ever try to make them.


Have a wonderful first day of March, everyone!
