Inspired by The Light…Spring and a warming trend!!

This is the first "personal use" piece that I made based on the Offerings Project.  Actually, I made it for the Duvall Library Plant and Garden Art Sale.  No one bought it so now I am putting at my house.  It was originally inspired by the behavior of some plants that have blooms that position…
