Happy Spring Bees and Flowers

Coming up soon, next weekend in fact! june 18 and 19..... my 1st annual  Spring Show and Sale...just under the wire to be a spring show!!!!
8 x 8 mixed media on panel

 I am busy as a bee these days.....whew!!! annnnd, i LOVE seeing and hearing sooo many bees around lately...this makes me very happy...they are buzzzzzing around my kale plants that have totally gone to flower cause i have been soooooooooooo consumed with other things!!!! still, i am eating kale every day..i LOVE it....and have been reluctant to cut back the plants because the bees are so happy there....the kale are like small trees right now, as tall as me!!!!!!!!!!!!

 and earlier this spring we had bright red tulips all over....big bursts of colour! awesome to see, they had huge flowers on them...just so full of life....the 1st time for me to have tulips in my garden....although "garden" suggests that there is some tending going on....lush jungle would be more accurate...good thing i like things on the wild side....

more bees in glass, on wood and a variety of combinations, as you've seen on other posts....i find that when the imagery really feels right it will appear and reappear for years to come....like fish, and leaves, flowers and fruit, even vegetables....  i liked dill pickle wind chimes the best, haven't made them for a while, maybe because i have not canned up real edible dill pickles for a long while either...buffalo, horses, birds, chickens, eggs.....bees are one of my favourite little beings right now.....
