And Spring arose on the garden fair,
Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on Earth's dark breast
rose from the dreams of its wintry rest.
-- Percy Bysshe Shelley, "The Sensitive Plant"
In honor of spring and the flowers slowly unfolding in my garden, I bring you a few
more French beaded flowers from my Glass Prairie collection. While they aren't
necessarily spring flowers themselves, they raised my spirits during the darkest
of winter days.
