Spring Overload

At the risk of becoming a flower/weather blog, boy howdy - how about this spring!  There have been years when our first daffodil hasn't bloomed until March 17, and here we are March 21st and some things are already finished blooming.

These pictures (along with probably a hundred others) were taken in my yard on St. Patrick's Day -

To keep it quilt related, they all inspire me with their color and form. And who knows - maybe they'll end up in a quilt someday?

Down in my lair I've been quilting birds and branches (maybe a little hard to see here - this is the back of the quilt). I'm hoping to make slow but steady progress.

Normally this is the ideal season to photograph birds in silhouette on the beautiful sculptures the branches create. This year I'm afraid the leaf out will be too fast to get many good pictures. Oh well, at least what winter we had is over!

Our photographs seem to mirror eachother!
Happy Spring!
