My field of paper flowers

I have been all over the place but I can always somehow find my center with flowers, real or paper.  I have been working on a few smaller sized paper flowers and had no idea what to do with them once I was done.  I didn't want to put them on a card like I usually do.  I felt that after all the work they needed a more special place to live, like on a person, maybe?

Cue, my new fetish, and yes, it has quilling:

I have a weird relationship with poppies.  They are one of the flowers I can't seem to grow.  I find them so beautiful with their airy nature and super bright colors.  I can imagine being surrounded in a beautiful field of them.  But, for now I will be in my field of paper poppies.  

I was so excited to see that I was not the only one in a poppy mood.  I got my May edition of Martha Stewart Living in the mail this weekend and guess what flower is being featured throughout?  Yup!  The pretty poppy.  I think I might give them a try again in my garden....

I'm super elated that everything is blooming and growing.  Hopefully hubby and I will spend some time cleaning up the garden this weekend.  If it doesn't rain again, that is.

Have a SWEET week!!
