And lilacs, and wisteria, and dogwoods. Spring has come full force to Portland after all our rain, so my May stitching project is starting out with loads of bright color.
One of the good things about this daily stitching project is it forces me to work with colors that I normally wouldn't touch. Spring is challenging for me with all those pinks and lavendars, and sunshine and happiness. I'm much more comfortable in the somber tones of fall and winter. But a little cheerfulness is probably good now and then.
