Two steps outside my back door and I see beauty in all directions. This is my interpretation of the view. It tells me how close an art subject can be for all of us.

I love Kay’s sentiment–right now my backyard in Turlock, CA is filled with birds singing, and trees, flowers, and shrubs blooming. I don’t get to look out at a vista, but within my little fenced backyard beauty is abundant. The day is poised for 90 degree weather and it’s not even May yet. The mornings are wonderful, but it will be hot this afternoon.

What could be more perfect than Calif spelled out in Monarch Butterflies! Jo’s Monarch Butterflies comes to us all the way from Australia. This is the Postcard that has traveled the greatest distance to reach us. Thank you, Jo.

Monarch Butterflies always remind me of California. This card is hooked on Hessian with hand dyed 100% wool carpet yarn from New Zealand “a left-over” recycled from a carpet company and sari silk off-cuts.
