January in Bloom

I’ve been dreaming up a new look for Suwannee Rose for a while now, and my friends Marti and Cait helped bring it to life. I think of the new look as the Orange Blossom Special. Those are actually calamondins, my favorite tiny citrus, illustrated by a lovely girl named Anna. We’re still working behind the scenes to make everything perfect, so forgive me if you get lost, and if you need help finding something, just email me. We’re almost there!

In the mean time, here are my favorite moments this month in photos.

We took advantage of some very low tides to explore some sandbars that only surface in winter.   It was cool and dreary for Gasparilla, but pirates are tough and rum warms the belly.We visited Miami and the tropical paradise of Fairchild Gardens with some old friends. The sun broke through yesterday when I met my mom, my cousin Sara, and her boyfriend Jonny at Bok Tower Gardens. Somehow that place always feels like home.  I can’t believe tomorrow is February! I’ve got lots of recipes coming up this month. Hope to see you back here soon.  xo

    Love, love, LOVE the new site!! It’s absolutely stunning, and the calamondins are a perfect fit. Speaking of, I’m pretty sure my tree died due to my total neglect and leaving it out in the cold. We’ll see come spring. Can’t wait for your new recipes!

      Thank you so much, Coley! I hope the calamondin tree pulls through. I can always send you some fruit, but they’re such pretty trees. They have some very manicured, Alice in Wonderland-style ones at Bok Tower Gardens that I admired yesterday. Some may have found their way in my pockets and cheeks.

    I’m excited about your new look! And I also adore calamondins – they’re just delightful. Looking forward to more tasty treats and stories from Suwannee Rose 🙂

      Thank you, Nicole! I’ve only had a handful of calamondins so far this year, but as soon as I get a bunch I’ve got some new recipes to try. They’re so much fun to work with, equal parts pretty and tasty.
