Memories of spring and summer are always full of forget-me-nots and sunflowers. I found a cute little paper mache suitcase that fit the design I had in mind and I even added a sunflower inside the suitcase for whimsy. Everywhere I have had a garden I have had sunflowers and naturally this little red-headed gardener has her sunflower patch as well.
The forget-me-nots are a wonderful memory I have of my sweet sister-in-love, Maureen. I sent her a bunch of seeds when I was living in Maine and she returned the favor and sent me some of her seeds from Washington State to me in Minnesota. I love an area carpeted with the lovely blue blossoms they produce. These will be first seeds I sow this spring.
This was a fun piece to design and paint. Of course, it can be painted on any surface you choose in case you cannot find a paper mache suitcase.
