Earth Laughs In Flowers



FLOWERS ... are coming to life...


...the dark ones have carbon from fusing, the bright ones are waiting to be fused...


FLOWERS

 All... in... little... rows...

 But in this northern clime...
 Only on my workbench... for now...
It has been a cool spring.


...still waiting ...
for my earth dwellers to burst forth their faces... 
I think of rhymes...


Mary, Mary, quite contrary,
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells and scallop shells, (Fundy, you know)
And pretty maids all in a row.

*well not quite, but the Daffodils are trying... soon, yes very soon
... about 8" tall now and  a hint of yellow can be seen through the green*




... a little water may help.




The Flower and Watering Can earrings...
One of the fruits of our labors from this past work session.


... Handmade, Copper/Sterling Silver, textured, forged, antiqued... approx. 1 ¾" from the top of the earwire to the bottom of the earring.
