For the majority of the United States it is April showers bring May flowers, well for Minnesota it is May Showers bring June Flowers because April is full of snow. This year for Spring in the sunroom I was inspired to create my own flower stand. One of my Grandpa’s had a flower stand every year when I was young and I always loved to go visit him there.

An unexpected ER visit for my little miss made us stay a bit longer, leaving me with just one day to work on my office.
