Finding beauty everywhere

These tiny flowers are nothing but weeds. At least that is what they are in my area. Most plants are weeds somewhere. They are a natural ground cover that comes up every Spring.

There are several kinds in various colors that come up but these are the only ones up so far. I remember when I was a very little girl I used to pick tiny "fairy bouquets". Back then One-A-Day vitamins came in little clear glass bottles. My grandmother used to give them to me to use as vases.

I uploaded a bunch of photos I took this evening of some of my flowers as well as these weeds to my flickr album.
Today I am finishing up a custom order but stay tuned because I am taking work in progress shots of a sculpture that I am working on. Will show them all once it is completed.

Do you crochet?

My longtime friend sukigirl has several crochet patterns that she has created and gives away for free on her blog. Her latest is so very sweet.

Glimpse of Spring

It is so beautiful here today. All of the yellow flowers are beginning to open up. Daffodils, buttercups, double daffodils, forcynthia bushes. I snapped a couple of pics for my friends who live farther North to show them that Spring really is going to show up this year. =)
