Outside my window as I write this, the wind is howling and the whole scene is gray and white. It's deep winter here in Boulder, Colorado! And yet . . . I'm dreaming of spring. I've been obsessively reading gardening books and planning out all that I will grow this year, even though our last frost date here is in the middle of May. Wishful thinking I suppose! I thought some of you out there might be able to relate and could use a little fanciful warm-up (and who doesn't love spring anyway?). So here it goes, some visions of spring for this installment of Everyday Handmade:
For me this is the quintessential image of spring---the blooming trees. I fall in love with them every year, and this photo by Eye Poetry Photography captures them perfectly. Find it here.
And spring wouldn't be possible without the bees, and these Crocheted Bumble Bees by Sabahnur are just the cutest. Find them here.
This delicate watercolor illustration of Rose Mallow by Ali Herrmann carries that sweet, whimsical essence that I love about spring. Find it here.
