12 Months in View - Bluebells & Trees

The flower of the month on 12 Months in view is the Bluebell.

We have a plethora of these in our garden, although they are not in full bloom as yet.

I made the origami bluebell earlier in the week.

I drew a Bluebell stem on my calendar page and added one of the Spring quotes around its leaves.

I then did my zine page for May using the Philip Larkin poem called "The Trees".

I used a couple of bare tree stamps and filled in with peg stamps, adding some around the border too.

So refreshing to see the trees coming into leaf.

Nice BJ! Lucky you to have bluebells growing in your yard. I have grape hyacinths which are kind of the same. Really like the origami bluebell and all your pages!
