Less than 3 weeks and we leave on our trip North and East with a substantial stopover in Santa Fe, New Mexico this Spring. I am getting my garden areas ready for our summer caretaker and many things are now blooming like lilacs, siberian irises, english lavender, and blanket flower. I will have an opportunity in 6 weeks or so to see my lilacs blooming on Campobello Island. Here most of the fruit trees have already bloomed and in the Maritimes and Downeast Maine it will be June before we see the apple trees blooming! Also added in a few kaleidoscopes of stained glass and mosaic projects that I completed as well as cholla and other cacti! See if you can figure out what is the original subject matter for all 14 kaleidoscopes.
