Spring sits just outside my office window, but I can hardly see it because my windows are so dirty. There were hummingbirds at the feeders, but they weren't drinking. I went out to check and the feeders were filthy. So I washed and refilled them and was rewarded right away with a thirsty little chap with a ruby scarf. I remember grandma doing her spring cleaning. Does anyone do that anymore? Leave a comment if you do. Tomorrow I am washing windows!
The Crabapples are beginning to bloom, along with many other spring flowers.
Although the Hellebores were in their prime a couple of weeks ago, they still look luscious.
This Cornus has beautiful foliage and it's leaves sit like little fairies on the branches.
I've been beading quite a bit. I go to a Beading Circle every Tuesday night. It's a great feeling to belong to a group of like-minded women. This feathered and beaded hairclip is one of the projects I just finished.
My daughter and I both love peacock colors and I've made a number of brooches in these colors for my Etsy shop.
Shalyhn, our belly dancing friend is my model for my beaded medallions. She dances so beautifully, but is shy. Why can't we see the creativity and beauty within us? Who came up with this habit of second-guessing ourselves? We need to find them and have a tar and feathering!
