The magic of hellebores is that they bloom before the other flowers when the ground is still muted with last fall's leaves. These burst forth promising life and color, and remind us that the garden is just beginning to wake up, and to be patient.

Smithsonian Craft Show

I will be attending a juried craft fair sponsored by the Smithsonian Women's Committee, in Washington, DC. The preview night gala is April 22nd, then the show opens to the public on Thursday, April 23rd. (This is the mailer they are sending out to invite patrons to the Preview Night Benefit. That's my basket above!) for more information and hours, please visit their website.
