All the little Whatsits from Whatsitville are having a tiny tea party. If you listen very closely you will hear the teeny tinkling of the tiny teacups as they are carried across the milkweed floor and set upon the little woven grass tables on this lovely floating cafe.

I know this is not heather but the little puffs of this dandelion with tiny water drops just made me think of this song and the idea that perhaps it was a little boat floating out on the calm lake on a warm Spring afternoon.

Original blow ball used to create this image. Photo shot with a Nikon CP8400 in May 2010. Kaleidoscope created in PWP then edited in PSCS2.

    Beautifully done, Rhonda. I keep thinking of a hat, looking down at the top of the head and after listening to the lovely Blooming Heather it could be a Tam o Shanter. Thats a Scottish hat originally for men but also can be worn by women. This of course is a womens verson. The centre piece looks perfectly embroidered surrounded by luxourious fur.
    I think Whos could live in a hat like this and Horton could wear the hat to keep them safe.

  • Sue, It could be worn as a hat yes. A soft, fuzzy hat that has a light fragrance of lemon and whisky… And when it is worn everyone wants to pet it because, as Eeva says below, they feel like stroking it….
    Horton would wear it to protect his little friends…
    Thank you for enoying this silliness with me…

    Pretty and so soft, I feel like stroking it… Cheers…

  • Thank you Eeva… it really does look soft and with one breath it can be scattered into an explosion of seedlings.

    Gorgeous artwork Rhonda, looks very biomorphic. Stunning fluffiness and lightness to it.
    Did you hear about Cheryl Fugate’s RedBubble account being permanently closed by RB?

  • Thank you Seth. I just heard about Cheryl’s account and we are trying to find out what happened. . . it has to be some sort of error. Have you heard anything?
