Flowers are popping up everywhere in the field at the top of our hill — wild irises and bluebells and lilacs bushes that seem to have been there forever. All the weed-y wildflowers that only children seem to notice.. wild sweet peas, buttercups and the start of the Queen Anne's lace.
We've been putting our f&f exclusive Nature Collection Tray to fine use this month, gathering and collecting as we go. It's so interesting how a field of flowers can come together into a lovely collection for drawing, imagining, smelling & feeling that may otherwise go unnoticed. Our next project is to take the dried lilac blossoms & soak them in oil to create a lovely scented homemade perfume to remind us of the beautiful spring we've had.
