Wildflowers + City & Colour

Last week I went to Anthropologie and picked up an old copy of Darling magazine for half the original price! It is Issue No.3/Spring 2013, in case you were wondering it's still on sale. In one of the articles it mentions picking wildflowers to put in your home. On our nightly walk with Joker, I brought my gardening shears and took one branch of every flowering bush (and a few fun leafy branches) to add to our wildflower bouquet. Jason said how nice it was to have a representation of our walk in our home. 

I love that if someone else were to do this all of their flowers would be different. I would love to see what native botanicals people see everyday. 

I have a feeling that I'm going to be doing this more often. I didn't realize how colorful my neighborhood was until now.



It is so peaceful to take a break from schoolwork and read my new favorite magazine with a cup of green tea. Also, I'm loving the little bunting banner we put in with our potted succulent. This particular succulent is called "Ghostly" which is perfect for October.

Last Friday we went to the City & Colour concert. When I was in high school I was a big fan of Alexisonfire, but now I've fallen deeply in love with this album. Jason and I opened it up and thought it was the coolest thing that it was a clear record. I have a feeling that this is going to stay right where it is: on repeat, and making us oh so happy.

♥ Do you like to pick wildflowers? Have you heard the new City & Colour album?

  2. I should pick some flowers! I never thought to bring garden shears with me, but that's brilliant. Your succulent is lovely too!

  3. City and Colour is so super good. I never really listened to Alexisonfire though. Also, really digging the bunting/succulent combo. I have a succulent that I did a poor job of planting and the pot needs to be more balanced. I'm seeing changing out the bunting based on holidays... Yes, thank you for the idea!
