...hello again dear hearts!
earlier this month, i had a gentle urge
to make a floral crown for my Mary statue.
~ and as it sometimes occurs,
the topic arose as i was conversing with a dear customer
about this desire.
imagine my delight when she told me that in the month of May,
that (in the Catholic Church)
the Virgin Mary is honored as "the Queen of May"!
here a few photo's of my Mary's May flower crown...
i adore how the fresh, spring green background looks
as a back drop to her white crown and lace veil.
there was an interesting, ancient brick fence
at the location i chose...
i admire the decaying beauty of it all.
i could hardly believe my eyes
when i saw the above photo up on the screen,
as the lighting of the sun that day
caught the camera just so...
can you detect a golden halo around her head??
i just had to add a faint lace accent to it...
more ancient loveliness...
O Mary we crown thee with blossoms today,
Queen of the Angels and Queen of May!
~adore~ this shot,
Mary and a mini crystal chandie :)
i always look forward to the spring flowers
as they are so short lived.
i try an capture a glimpse of their beauty
for those long winter days!
and like many of you ~
one of my favorite flowers are lilacs...
wouldn't you agree?!
