spring flowers & lemonade

lamonade recipe

even though it was pouring snow on monday, the high today is 72 and i'm simply sprung about spring!  yes, enough to where i even made some hand squeezed lemonade, yum.


1 cup of lemon juice

1 cup of sugar (i put a dash more, i like mine sweet!)

the squeeze of one lime

6 cups of cool water

stir until the sugar has dissolved, kick back, and relax!

today was also the first day that i was able to pick flowers from my yard, a splash of homegrown yellow goes a long way!

  • i made a one-glass version a few weeks ago with an about-to-pass lemon. you’ve reminded me how tasty that was, so now i’m going to have to go buy a bag and make my own pitcher! =)

  • Yes, it was weird weather here in Kansas too. Sunday the kids were building a snowman and yesterday it was 72 with some snow still on the ground. Thanks for sharing your recipe :)

  • Now that melts away the winter chills! Spring is here! I can’t wait to make some lemonade.
