Good start of May month.

My favorite Spring flower no,1 is called "BLÅVEIS".
Very uncertain if it`s name excists in English. 

Below is a small stitchery I made back in 2002, It is on the wall in
the sparebedroom / read the most messy room in our house;
waiting to be sooo tidy after I pull myself together ... one of these days. 

HESTEHOV + BLÅVEIS + HVITVEIS
These are wild flowers, they all smell differently saying
" it`s springtime" 
Small ones, all growing on the ground and popping up when
 the sun starts to warm up the air.
We are not allowed to pick the blue ones anymore.
My ceramic pictures come out every Spring,
hanging on the wall for a fairly short time :-)
 
Just 7 days to go before Kaffe Fassett is opening his exhibition
 "50 years in Colours". I love lots of Kaffe`s designs/fabrics as well as
from the designer Brandon Mably, also travelling with KF.
We are about 30 quilters from one of my quilt guilds to be enjoing
this on coming Saturday. Takes about a good hour`s drive into a
beautiful country side of Norway! It will be such a thrill!

Yous Blaveis (Blåsippa) is a type of Anemone, but this one is special to Scandinavia, I think. Very pretty :-)
The Faffe Fassett show is going to be something special, enjoy!

Your Blåveis is Anemone hepatica or Liverwort, and the yellow one is coltsfoot. For me too they are true signs of spring.
