Spring has come early to Michigan. I work on the Michigan State University campus which is
blooming everywhere. These two glorious trees are right across from my
It is a Japanese flowering crab tree. The buds are pink and the inside of the blossoms are white. The combination is stunning. They are my favorite trees on campus.
I love them so much my DH bought me the same type of flowering crab for
my front yard. It hasn't bloomed yet and it has a little way to go
until it looks like the ones at work, but I am hopeful.
On Tuesday, April 17 I'll be visiting the Quilt Guild of Metro Detroit where I'll be speaking about Quiltmaking in Detroit in the 1930s. Guild members are invited to bring quilts from the 1930s, so it should be a great show and tell too.I hope to see some of you there.
