Spring Weather Grams

After three months hanging in the tree outside my studio, five weather grams survived the Winter weather.  The others flew away or were used by squirrels or birds.  It's amazing how they do survive all of the elements of rain and wind. 

We gathered last week to exchange our Spring weather grams.  After one week, half are already gone.
Where they went, I don't know.  I scoured the yard to find them but didn't find one.

I'm glad that I took photos of them before hanging them in the tree branches.

One thing that I enjoy about this exchange is reading each person's poem.
Mine is the one on the left.  I decided to machine stitch the two layers of paper bag together so that they wouldn't come apart.  This is such a fun way to honor the change of each season that I plan to continue hanging them at each solstice and equinox.

This is a wonderful exercise in perseverance through the elements.
I also am enjoying reading your previous posts about your calligraphy works and books.

These are beautiful! Lloyd J Reynolds invented the Weathergram. He was a brilliant calligrapher, teacher & scribe. He was also Oregon's Calligrapher Laurette.
