may crown

day501.jpg

Made one week ago of ribbons and ivy and hyacinths and dandelion and thyme blossoms, this wreath hangs on a nail high in the front hall. Last year's crown, dried to a crisp tan, has been moved to a nail on the door to the basement. My daughter's idea... and so begin traditions. I didn't intend to save last year's crown, but somehow we did.

Love it. Gorgeous sketch. Bet the real thing is gorgeous too. :o)

Well, gorgeous is in the eye of the beholder... the real thing is a bit bedraggled. Feels like a sign of spring though, and a reminder of warm days and blossoms ahead. (And it was great fun to draw.)
