This little boat was out on the porch, tucked into a planter.
During a wind storm this week it blew away.
I found it on the bottom step.
what a joy it would have been to see it fly,
but maybe it's better imagined...

Spring is such a determined season...
things must grow:
In the neighborhood
In the garden
The bee keeper's quilt to-be is large enough to be a cushion.
I'm finding 5 hexagons a week a manageable goal.
It wants to grow too.

"The earth laughs in flowers." Ralph Waldo Emerson
Lemon balm that grew from seed that came from plant that flowered and then went to seed.
"Seedy" isn't always a good thing, but here it is a sweet thing.
Struggling to bloom, it seems too early.
Out of cycle?
seven hexagons = a flower
A little bigger and it will be a hot pad.
And then a chair pad or mostly likely, cat bed.
And then a lap quilt.
And then larger enough to cover a body.
Probably no bigger as it would become hard to wash.

Note to self: remember to plant more flowers for the bees.
Not just the sewing of two pieces of fabric together (Plant dyed fabric), but seams as in seams of earth.
I like thinking too that a seam might be a scar or a suture.
