Earth Day was in April and my garden celebrated: tulips and daffodils were open and we ate from our first crop of asparagus! My husband planted a few asparagus starters years ago--and we had to wait two years for the first crop--now we get so many that we can't eat them all! Fresh asparagus is very, very tasty!
I was able to put all sorts of "earth-y" photos in my Project Life album last week, and I also made some stitched and Earth Day cards to include on the pages:
|Stitched title card|
|Altered Studio Calico journal card with stitched sequins|
|Journal card made with a WildOlive cartoon|
April was also National Poetry month and I read some poems to celebrate. I find that I am enjoying poetry a lot more lately; it's almost as if something has "clicked" in my brain and I can take it in.
I also wrote one poem, inspired by things I love. I hope you enjoy it!
Gray is a sad cloud.
But to me--
Gray is my pastel.
The mist that reveals morning
The softness of elven garb
And smooth covers of Persephone's tomes.
It is silver, a treasure,
The comfort of Herdwick wool
In a shawl, that cloud
On my shoulders that comforts.
