March, you are such a tease…

March really is the cruelest month for those of us in the upper Midwest.  The days are longer and there are reports of spring and blossoms in other parts of the country.  We get yet another blizzard that left over 800 motorists stranded across the state of North Dakota.  Although the storm was well predicted it hit hard and fast when it arrived with 50 mph winds.  I can’t even get to my forsythia bushes to cut branches and force blooms.  They are buried in a snow bank yet.
So what’s a girl to do but make her own bit of spring!

I think this is one of my favorite free projects.  Branches from the yard, tissue paper saved from presents, and a hot glue gun create spring magic!
And to keep enjoying spring a bit more, I played around with photo editing.
