|Spring is here! Snow has melted and plants are starting to push their way up through the soil, budding and turning green. I am reveling in every moment I can steal outside in the sun. It has been fantastic! What do you have blooming outside? Just outside my door and down the sidewalk a little, I have a spectacular magnolia blooming. The sweet smell has permeated the air with its sweet delicate scent.
There is an added benefit besides the view changing and weather warming up. If you like to add tinctures, extracts and infusions to your products, you are now unlimited! Just take a stroll and see what inspires you! I am thinking of perhaps an infusion with basil or even sagebrush. What do you have right outside your door that you could use?

WHOA, those aren’t Southern Magnolias, I’m guessing? Never seen that many Magnolias in one place! That’s beautiful!
Our fruit trees are going CRAZY with blossoms. So are our herbs! Can you believe I’ve never seen Sage blossom? It’s such a nice purple! 🙂
These are actually two different types of magnolias. The white magnolias are Yulan Magnolias and their scientific name is Magnolia denudata. The pink magnolias are Mulan Magnolias and their scientific name is Magnolia liliiflora. There are so many flowers here in China and I’m loving looking at the new flowers each day!
I also love sage blossoms! I think they are such a beautiful color!
