Nearby there's a faded yellow apartment house, the one on the corner trimmed with white fluted pilasters and creeping dark ivy. A small tree grows in the side yard, casting a spray of spindly branches up over the tall hedge that hems it in against the street. I've measured nearly two years by those branches, passing under them en route to campus. Looking up to see their barren silhouette against the gray chill of December. Watching them alight with five-petaled buds in the cloudless blue of late spring.Now, those branches are dusted with petals in the slightest shade of pink and the season is fully fledged. Today I bring you an appropriately springtime craft that I created for Janie's wonderful site The Bride's Cafe. I hope you'll head on over to see more photos and complete instructions for making your own crepe paper bouquet.
