Here in Los Angeles we are enjoying spring weather, but the East Coast of the US is having a major snow storm as I write this. They even closed schools in New York. Snow outside my window would be very fun since we never get it, except in the mountains. But for now I have spring flowers to share. This tree in my neighbor’s yard is just starting to blossom. Soon it will be covered with pink flowers.
A nasturtium in my yard. The leaves are huge. They almost hide the flowers.
I’m sharing a flower piece I made a while back. It is all hand stitched.
In the following pieces I used handmade paper. ( I didn’t make it). I stamped the colors onto the paper, and added some ink. After stamping the flowers in rows, I cut some up to experiment with different arrangements.
This next “flower” is just a dandelion, but so pretty. The rain brought a lot up from the ground.
And the last is a photo of some Gerber Daisies I gave my mom for her birthday.

Enjoy your week.
