After the longest winter in 50 years, the warmer weather is a balm to my soul. Now there is blossom everywhere. It's almost as if after all the weeks of waiting everything decided to come out all at once.

After all the waiting, spring seems in such a hurry to run into summer. All we need is one gusty storm and all the lovely blossom will blow away. The photos capture the fleeting moment, holding the image still enough to re-create in textiles. My blossom pinterest board will keep the images fresh the year long.
