I've completed my May BJP. I'm pretty happy with the way this turned out. It looks a little uneven here, but it is laying flat on thin fabric. When it is hanging up it does look better (I know, why didn't I hang it up then? lol). I think I will be stretching my BJPs on some type of stiff board or something when I'm finished. Any suggestions on what would work for a base?
Spring is in the air one day, summer the next and mixed in with a bit of winter now and then, but not too bad as far as winter. Crazy weather this year. Below is a Mother's Day gift from T and one of my favorite plants, the Boston Fern. The hanger is a family piece I converted into a plant hanger.
I have peonies in two spots. The plants on the south side of the house bloom first and the ones in the back bloom a week or two later, so I really get to enjoy them a little longer.
This year I found seeds for purple carrots. They are just popping up. Another blogger had written about what a great fiber dye they make and I wanted to try it. I then read how good they are for you and that they have a little sweeter taste than the orange variety. I am so excited about these!
This is a volunteer tomato plant. It is about a foot high. I suspect it will have cherry tomatoes on it since they seem to come up every year on their own. I did just plant some full size tomatoes that are only about 4" high. To me there is nothing better than homegrown tomatoes.
The next couple of photos are taken around the house. We had high winds and a little hail the day before I took all of these photos, so you will see some leaves and other debris laying around. That's my excuse anyway.
I wish all the mother's out there a fabulous upcoming Mother's Day.
