After our very successful flag-waving in April, we now invite you to the peace of your garden and whole different colour pallette.
Our theme "Pick It From the Garden in May" is a chance for us to let our imaginations run wild.
For those of us in the northern hemisphere, it is spring... flowers are beginning to appear at last. For those of you in the southern hemisphere it is fall and harvest time... so for all of us wherever we live, the garden offers unlimited inspiration for squares.
Do you love doing flowers??? Are you more inspired by fruits and veggies?? Do you like the ‘critters’ in your garden (caterpillars, butterflies, bugs)?.Does May make you think of dancing around a May-pole?? Are you a ‘Plain Jane’ square-maker??
Whatever you are... let the colours of your garden be your inspiration... lavenders, purples, yellows, oranges, reds, pinks... there’s no end to what we can do.
Once again, we are asking that you post photos of your squares, both in the Photo section and here in this discussion, to inspire us all
Mary Lokken has volunteered to set up a Flickr page for us where all the photos can be assembled. The address is
Let’s make May a "blooming good" month... I can’t wait to see what you creative souls come up with.

Well here we go KASfolk - the May Challenge has begun.
Many of you have posted wonderful squares with a garden or spring theme in the last week or so.. I would love it it you would add them to this discussion and make them part of the May Challenge.
This will be an "anything goes" challenge - squares don't have to be garden specific, just garden 'inspired'. If you love plain janes more than anything, jump in here with your garden-coloured squares. If you love bugs... they are welcome too... as long as they are knitted or crocheted and not real!!
I'll start it all off with some strawberries
This will be lots of fun, Anne! Your strawberries square is wonderful, as are the Plain Janes! What a beautiful color palette!
I have set up a flickr page for our squares here:
And here's a square dedicated to my resident gecko, Clint!
Maybe you have ESP Sue.... or spring fever.... in any case the sunflower is wonderful. You must get Ellie to design some more squares... I love her garden
It's amazing what story a little square can tell :)
I've noticed your flower squares befoe Maggie... so we're looking forward to what 'blooms' in this discussion. Have fun.
Wow....very cool Sue!!
Lovely Sue! The bright red of the poppy really stands out well against the green of the square too, very 'gardeny'!
