Friday Flowers

Signs of spring are everywhere, here in Northern California.  All over town, tulip trees are a mass of rich pink blooms, while my tiny tree in the front yard is just starting to unsheathe its petals

and even my small azalea is starting to blossom

as cyclamen in valentine colors burst from their pots...

 In the backyard, forgotten bulbs are rising up from the mounds of dirt

They bring the promise of Spring with all its warmth and color and hope for longer, sunny days.

For those of you still buried in the depths of winter, perhaps you'd like to create your own spring garden with my DAFFODIL COLLAGE.  This sunny piece always makes me smile when I look at it, and I've added it to my current wall of stitchery, so I can enjoy its joyful sunshine...

Stitched on the sage green 18 ct. canvas, those bright yellow and greens really glow, don't they?
Here's a look up close:

If you'd like to stitch up your own patch of never-fading daffodils, please visit my website: and then click on the SECRET GARDEN COLLECTION to find the DAFFODIL COLLAGE, along with lots of other spring flower designs....
