Each year, there’s a short span of days when winter is over… but spring is still asleep.
The pristine snow slowly disappears and we’re left with a drab and dreary landscape. It’s bleak. We long for warm breezes and cheerful colors.
While we wait, we take comfort in the subtle signs that spring is emerging – early morning songs from returning birds… the appearance of tiny green shoots peeking through the soil…
More days pass and then – almost overnight – barren tree branches have exploded with leaves, the grass is remarkably greener, and the fragrance of lilacs drifts in through the open door.
Recently, while dreaming of spring flowers, I made some jewelry inspired by lilacs and violets and purple iris!
Here are a couple of examples.
Wishing you a Happy Spring!
( What have you been up to? 🙂 )
I’d love to hear your thoughts!
