April Showers Bring May Flowers

The BluPrint April, 2013
Volume 10 Issue 4, April 2013

What's New in April?
There is color everywhere!
The flowers are starting to bloom and show up in the local grocery stores.
The ground is still covered with snow in the high mountain areas, but there
is a crispness to the air that signals spring is coming. I saw the first robin
yesterday bouncing along the fence wire, and the pond is no longer frozen.
We did still have one snow that dumped tons of snow on us, but the pond
did not refreeze, giving me this beautiful wonderland outside the front

We went off to play in Yellowstone for    clip_image002
a glimpse of the park in the spring.

laughing at the playing baby big horn
sheep. They were learning to climb.
The first of spring was beginning to
peak around the corners of the rivers
and streams. There were small
patches of green and migrating birds. It was a wonderful day in the park even
though it was only 10 degrees!
Since spring is on its way, I did a
new ad with Stringing magazine and
used all my new spring flower beads.
This is a small sample of the colorful
beads that now happily living at my
house and ready for yours.
I did a lot of beads and new flowers
as I watched out the window at the
mallards beginning to pair up. It won’t
be long before there are baby ducks!

showing up in my flower canes these days. They have made their way into
some of my newest beads.
