My garden has temporarily faded into the rather boring doldrums of summer. Spring came late and really dragged its feet, but its profusion of blooms seemed to evaporate at a normal rapid pace. I am waiting for the heat of summer to hit, as I patiently wait for the daylilies to erupt and make the garden a whole lot more exciting (next week).
There is however an abundance of leaves. Since creating a full and colorful bouquet right at the moment is a little tricky, I am wondering if maybe some beautiful stained glass leaf panels might be a pretty – if temporary – way to bring in a little greenery from the garden. I am a sucker for collage of all sorts, so the idea of collaging leaves to create a stained glass effect is, of course, appealing. But I can’t help but try and think of ways to make it my own. Perhaps I can find a least a few flowers or petals to press into the design? Or maybe I can add some elements from the pile of magazines that I stack beneath my desk to make an entirely different scene. I’m looking forward to playing with this one…
