This weekend has had a theme – flower garlands! Both Saturday and Sunday we were donning flower garlands. Saturday we made them just for the fun of it, to embrace the few remaining days of the cherry blossom tress blooming in our front yard. And Sunday we had Maya’s Waldorf Playgroup Maypole. I really enjoy making flower garlands – these I made from two strands of entwined ivy with fresh picked cherry blossoms woven into it. Across cultures and ages the flower garland has been used in celebrations and rituals, I love all that they connotate. There is something so special about the act of placing a garland on your head, it is like you are transported to a magical place. It is a wonderful way to acknowledge the abundance of flowers in the height of Spring…and it looks so pretty!
