April Showers Bring May Flowers…

… Or so the nursery rhyme says.  This year, the rhyme seems a little obsolete as everything seems to have bloomed extremely early.  None the less,  for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, May is that glorious month when Spring has most definitely arrived and Summer is suggesting its arrival.  It is also the time of year when we really begin to notice the new life popping up around us- flowers, animal babies are out and about etc.

Following this idea of renewal and creation, I’m celebrating the month with the theme

Made-by-Hand

So much of what we buy, wear, consume, is made by machines, but there is nothing like those items made carefully and lovingly by human hands.  Admittedly, not everything that we create without the assistance of machines looks or functions as well as we would like, but I think there is something special about handmade items.

So here’s to those creators and their craft, documented carefully by the lens of a camera.
