What's New in May?
We have not had any April showers, but we certainly have lots of May flowers. Of course, we have been buying them as they go on sale. Our focus has been on Florida native perennials since they are less difficult to care for and will be the most excellent butterfly magnets!
This year, we added an entire section of gazanias that are explosive in color and spread out to cover a larger area. The butterflies just love all of the bright yellow and orange. In addition to the flowers, I started a new seed mixture for the birds that included mealworms. I don’t know if I got any other birds because of that, but the bluejays are very happy.
The milkweed fed a couple of very hungry monarch caterpillars this year, and as a result I have seen a few more monarch butterflies flitting around the yard. I don’t know if they are from those caterpillars, but it is still an encouraging sign.
As all of the new flowers start to bloom, so do all of the new ideas. They should do well to spark my creativity!
Posters: I have been working diligently to get my posters together, and those that are not hot rods are soon to follow.
Charms: I decided not to keep all the charms to myself, and started offering them for sale in my shop. They are located under the bead section.
Magnets: New hummingbird and giraffe magnets join the lineup. Hot rod magnets are also available. Right now, I only have the Fords done.
You will find all of my beads, canes and finished jewelry on my website. www.bluemorningexpressions.com
Until next month,
Things to Look Forward To:
Cross Stitch Patterns: As many of you may have noticed, my cross stitch patterns are almost all loaded on the website. I have another 20 or so to add before I can start doing more designing.
Key rings: I am working on developing a ton of new key rings that will include my hot rods and National Park photos.
Coasters: Another new product is a line of drink coasters that go with my mugs. Still have not put them all together yet, but am working on it.
