Waiting for the Forget-Me-Nots

Just the other day I noticed that the tips of my tulip and hyacinth bulbs are starting to poke through the seemingly barren stretch of garden. They give me hope that spring is on its way, and following will be the spring flora of late-blooming bulbs and the tender blue forget-me-nots.

Not long ago I discovered some vintage 35" wide yardage of a pretty calico that reminded me of the clusters of blooms that grow in one of my gardens. This week I made a couple aprons and might be able to squeeze one more out of what's left, but for now there is a Tasha Tudor style and a 1950s style with scallops.
