A feature blog post on Call Me Curious!

Greetings from the Spring garden, Just a few pictures to say hello from my garden on a weekend afternoon. I wish I could send along the beautiful fragrance over this post. Scent is so closely related to memory...this clematis reminds me of my wedding and my Mom doing all the flowers with the help of... Continue Reading →
