Okay, so I know that winters in other climates are a LOT worse than ours (I hear it's still snowing in Utah, for example....I'm so sorry for you out there. And of course the northern states and Canada have a long time before the great thaw) but these spring flowers are still a very, very welcome sight for my sore eyes.
Hopefully the flowers from my garden will liven your spirits too, even if they are just images on a screen.
Such a perfect counterpoint to the cheery, sunny yellow of daffodils.
Yellow and purple are complimentary colors for a reason...
I made this wreath a few years ago, and although these blooms are all fake, they still evoke that fresh, exciting aura of S*P*R*I*N*G.
And it's very nice that they never die.
All very good qualities for a girl who is up past her eyeballs in things to finish in the next month.
My neglected vegetable garden is crying for me, and the snow peas are still trapped in their paper envelope on my table...but I just don't have the time to spend a couple of days weeding, hoe-ing (how on earth do you spell that?!) and planting my precious garden yet.
So these pictures will have to suffice for now. I'm still finishing up my studio and all the props for my booth at QuiltMarket (a mere month away....ack!!) while awaiting the arrival of my fabric, which still has not made its way to my door (obviously, or I'd be showing you pictures of fabric instead of flowers).
The only thing that's preventing me from having a complete heart attack about that is the vast amount of work I'm dealing with right now. Hopefully in the next few days I'll be done (enough) with my studio to photograph some of it. Still waiting on a few doors and some things on the walls, but at least it's fully functional at this point.
