Do you see it? It’s the sun streaming in through my windows and bringing it’s warm touch into my home!
It isn’t full-on sunshine, but the muted early morning glow of a sun that hasn’t fully burned off the fog. But it’s enough! Enough to make me know that Spring is finally here. Time for something new. New life . . . green and growing things . . . bunnies in the yard . . . rhodie blooms opening wide . . . fresh new decor around the house . . . and time to wash the windows!
I began by stretching the willow ball to create a hole large enough to put the topiary ball through. Don’t worry, you’ll be able to pull it back together easily when you’re finished. After that I simply began tucking sprigs of greenery into the willow ball, weaving them over and under the willow branches to secure them in place.
This is what I started with, the dusty Old Thing that I no longer had use for. I liked the pot though and I kept wondering what I could do with it to make it New. I thought of making one of those metal orbs, or using a BIG ball of boxwood to place on top, but I finally decided on a Spring Topiary.
I am so glad you stopped by to see me today and I hope you are feeling the joy of Spring wherever you happen to live.
