This is just one of the many plum trees on my street in full bloom right now. As I mention in my other blog, plum tree blossoms means pollen means eczema and other stuff for one too many children that I know. But rain is in the forecast for tomorrow - the rains tempers things. But for today - I will be making sun tea - rose hip and hibiscus "Red Zinger" tea to be exact :)
The disintegration project is basking in sunshine too. The colors are amazing from the weathering that is going on. I am so happy and so inspired with this project - of which my hand has had very little to do with. Lumilyon mentioned a book entitled, "In Praise of Shadows," by Japanese writer Jun'Ichiro Tanizaki. It's an amazing little book of appreciation for all things natural, rustic, disintegrating (and those words don't quite fit entirely) ..... a finding of beauty in the ordinary and weathered parts of life.
And I found these beautiful, natural, weathered, river-worn egg shaped rocks. I think I will "decorate" one or 2 of them for Easter. Milliande (the zentangle video lady) has a cool project using egg shaped rocks (or actual eggs) to make zeggtangles. I think I'll try it :) ..... I hope you have a speggtacular day today .... I hope you are able to make some sun tea too! (((hugs)))
