It’s amazing how life picks up speed at certain times of the year, there is so much going on, its tough to keep ahead or even keep up! apologies for the long stretch of nothing between blogs.
My cherry blossom inspired quilt “Hanami” is finished and on its way to the Cherry Blossom show..
I’ll be at the opening and hope you can drop by and see the wonderful collection of work if you’re in the neighborhood.
Spring had finally happened here and it arrived with a thump! one day it was winter and the next day it was spring. I have been waiting for the weather to warm up a bit to get started on some work in the front garden and the digging is under way. There’s nothing pretty to show yet but there will be… maybe not soon, but there will be.
This beautiful tree is the center point of the new front garden design, it’s such a beautiful thing. As the day warms up the large cup like flowers open and then close again in the evening. It’s a stunning tree and huge (OK, only about 20 feet tall) but the front deck is nestled right into the branches, it feels like being in a tree house. I’m not quite sure what the tree is called ..tulip tree has been mentioned but!?
The shape if the flower certainly suits it being called a tulip tree!
I love this time of year, all sorts of new shoots coming out in the garden and the forest and best of all it’s light in the mornings and evenings. There have been a few stunning sunsets but this image was taken very early in the morning ( very, very) of the moon over the city. I know the electric wires probably aren’t a feature to most people but I love the bold lines dividing the city.
Almost getting up so early for ( almost!)
Bye for now, Catherine
