The cold frame in the garden is plumb full so some things had to be brought inside -- the mini greenhouses winter-sown with lupine, Mexican primrose and California poppies worked out pretty well considering I've done basically nothing since the day they were planted. I will definitely do it again next winter.
Presenting #4 of the indigo-dyed napkins -- they were quite stained in their previous life.
A-Maying rituals -- hanging the calendar moon cloth.
And stitching a hawthorn tree drawn onto linen with the magic pen -- the linen has been basted onto a lighter cotton cloth and the blossoms will be pink because that was the color of our first hawthorn tree blossoms.
P.S. Did you know that the white May flower often referred to on Beltane (May Day) is the hawthorn blossom?
Another ritual is bringing in the May with a bouquet of honeysuckle branches.
Lastly, I'm sending you a joyful May with this lovely song. xo
