A New Page
A new month! Bright. Trees bursting in blossoms and leaves. A little breezy, bringing in the sunshine, blowing clouds away. Flowers shyly showing their faces, then more boldly showing their bright splashes of color. May is a month when I'm finishing up inside projects, and trying to find more time to be outside. I feel like I'm coming out of my cocoon, and want to flit from plant, to plant. Or maybe sit in front of the outdoor fireplace after a satisfying day working in the sun.
This page of the calender is painted with acrylic and metallic paint, then using pearlized cotton embroidery floss, I stitched leaves and French knots.
May is the time I really feel the season change. March and April are teasers, especially this year. I love them, and look forward to those months, but May is it.
Tomorrow, I'll show you the lilacs .........mmmmm!
