The Inspiration for this year’s calendar:
This marks the 10th year that we’ve created a garden desk calendar. Each year, before we begin designing, a few butterflies appear in our stomach, and we wonder: will we still be able to create something beautiful, meaningful, and different— like at a certain point won’t we have said all we need to say about fruits, vegetables, and flowers?! But then we’re reminded that even if we see the same plants, animals, and seasonal shifts year after year, we never tire of it, in fact we lean in closer. We look harder, hoping to find something we never noticed, and what we find is that the discovery and the beauty is always there it’s up to us to see it.
The theme for this year was pulled from a Rachel Carson quote (that we’re including as a small card with each calendar): “There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature- the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.”
These lovely words are just the reminder of hope that we need: Spring follows Winter just like light follows dark. We can hold on to these words and these prints on both the light and dark days and know that it’s all a part of the cycle of our seasons and our lives. Thank you for your support and for allowing us to be a small part of your Spring, your Winter, and everything in between!
