The snow is almost gone!
Spring is close by, and my tulips and crocuses are beginning to poke through the dirt.
The snow is melting, and some of my heart mosaics have reemerged from under the snow.
The mosaics are the only spots of color in the garden beds, which is one of the reasons I left them out all winter.
I made seven so different heart mosaics in 2007-2008, trying out different techniques and cements. You may be able to guess which ones were earlier experiments. I didn't grout and seal any of these. They shouldn't be left out all winter, but the colors peeking through the snow was always so cheery, so I left them out.
My daughter made the circle stepping stone below using leftovers from some stained glass projects and other objects I found. For the next month or so, this will be about all the color we will have around here.
But if you want to see spring flowers right now, go to my on-line shop and click on the flowers and spring section. I have beautiful cards and photographic prints of many favorite spring flowers.
