The Root Children

The winter here in the Pacific Northwest can be cold and very rainy. That is okay though, for deep underground, sleeping in their warm, winter beds sleep The Root Children. They are busy resting, for they have much service to perform before Spring can appear. Mother Earth gently wakes them from their slumber, urging each to shake the sleep from their wee eyes and get ready for the work of those deep below the earth.

They sew and dye the flower petals. They polish the beetles. They paint and shine the ladybugs too. And here they are, just for you...

The students at Alberta Art Classes wet felted the beds and I hope will be delighted when they return this week to find these sweet Root Children nestled in their beds. Spring will come, my friends. I promise.
