It's May Day!!!!
A traditional day of celebrating the arrival of Spring. A day with ancient history that has evolved over the years and varies from region to region.
Dancing around a "MAY POLE" is just one of the many traditions observed on this day.
Along with crowning "May Queens" and making "May Baskets" of flowers.
I used to make a May Day wreath to hang on the front door. In this house the front door faces east and we have a glass storm door. So any fresh flower wreath wilts almost instantly in the hot sunlight. Even if it's chilly outside :(
Perhaps later today I'll make one for the bedroom door :)
The WIP has finally become a finished project...
... it just needs a name now :-/
With all of the Spring activity going on here my art is a little random and spread out over lots of little bits of stolen moments and bursts of inspiration.
I have several WIP's going on now.
This one from last week has had a change of direction...
... and I've started another 5x7 inch note card...
... then there is the art journal spread I'm working on. A page I started while dealing with the loss of a friend.
Along with May Day celebrations also comes the time to actually start putting all of the started plants into the ground. Another celebration of New Beginnings.
This is only a sample of what I have started :)
Then there is the beauty of the Spring perennials!
....and Alliums are all waking up this week :)
