May! Such a wonderful month in New England
Every year I look forward to May, the weather begins to warm up and the ground begins to stir as the sleeping plants begin to wake. I have so many memories as a young girl gardening with my Mother. For as long as I can remember, my Mother has loved plants and taken great pride in growing them. It didn't matter it they were flowering or vegetables, she loves them all.
My parents always planted a very large vegetable garden, where many life lessons were learned as a child. I was always fascinated by the way the vegetable garden was a world within itself. Growing and busying itself underground, and working hard above soil flowering and sprouting buds of tiny fruits and veggies. Always in a constant war against invaders such as insects, rodents, disease. The garden taught us about hard work and its pay offs and sometimes even when you work hard you don't always get what you deserve. That's pretty deep stuff coming from a vegetable garden! Needless to say the gardens were a childhood staple.
This vegetable dresser comes straight from those memories. Painted in a playful way, it will add joy and whimsy to a kitchen, dining room or a child's room.
