The crocus plant is found throughout Western Canada and is Manitobaâ€™s official wildlife flower. The crocus is quite vibrant in varying shades of lavender and purple. In this piece I have also included apple blossoms as I love their fragrance and colour. What would spring be like without birds? So I have included a family of Red-breasted Nuthatches, which are found in the woodland areas of Western Canada, but also enjoy urban bird feeders.
Techniques: Thread work on the birds, and some of the ground cover was felted. All of the fabric was hand-painted.
