April Showers Bring May Flowers

OUR APRIL TABLE features a spring pastoral scene set in the vivid colors of the freshly emerging natural life around us. We used our Sea Playsilk for the lovely spring sky, here on a sunny day though we expect and hope for more rainy days as well to help our spring flowers and vegetable crops! An Emerald Playsilk sets our growing grass, and a Yellow Playsilk drapes and matches our vase of daffodils, freshly cut from the garden. Hand-painted and hollowed eggs hung with string from a tree branch portray an image of the brightly budding flowers in our local trees. Always work to be done outside at this time of year, our female wooden figure tends her animals, or perhaps she is Mother Earth coming to greet her animal friends, while soft spring fairies dressed as bunnies emerge under the daffodils.
