Bringing the garden indoors

It's May and the garden just beyond the studio windows is tempting me with all the joys of springtime. The lilacs are so sweet that even when I am not looking, they lure me with their perfume. I finally couldn't resist and brought armloads into the house yesterday.

Deadlines are crushing lately but I am so lucky! I can take my work outdoors and sit under the trellis with my scissors and paper, and snip away while the bees wander through the lilacs, linger on the honeysuckle and buzz past me, sitting quietly and gathering inspiration for the next project while I finish the one that's due this afternoon.
