Welcome to Spring! 1

When we think about the spring season, we think about many things. We think about beautiful blooming flowers and freshly cut grass. About the warmer weather, longer days and the beautiful melodies of songbirds back from their winter migrations.

When we think of spring, we think about renewal and freshness. And that’s what we were thinking about when we were putting together this spring farm-to-table issue of Vinings Lifestyle.

We were thinking about perusing the Marietta Square Farmers Market and finding the best in-season produce—apricots, asparagus, broccoli, honeydew, oranges, pineapple and strawberries, to name a few.

We were thinking about honey, about edible flowers to bring the beautiful colors of spring to your table, about refreshing spring looks and about all the locally sourced goods this season has to offer.

So as you make your way around Vinings/Smyrna this season, breathe in a plethora of fresh air. Enjoy the sun’s warmth, the clouds’ showers, the bustling of people and the rejuvenation spring brings after a long winter. Festival season is also upon us. There is no need to search the internet for dates, we’ve put together a 2017 list of festivals so you can start making plans now. May you find the contents of these pages as renewing and refreshing as we find this time of year.

We’ll be soaking up as much as we can, and can’t wait to see you around.
