March: Japanese Tea Garden
Our hearts are soaring this month, because Pat decided to visit one of our favorite things in the world, Japanese Gardens! Like the world-famous one in Portland, Oregon that has inspired so many of us, Pat explores the harmony and idealized beauty of these horticultural works of art, and her inspiration truly shines in this month's block!

April: Keukenhof Garden, Holland
Time to take a look at the garden that was beautiful enough to inspire this entire project, the amazing tulip garden in Keukenhof, Netherlands! This month's pair of blocks are inspired by majestic windmills, vibrantly colorful tulips, and the flowing hills of this gorgeous garden. Pat tells us all about it, and includes a video tutorial for the block to demonstrate her techniques. Take a look!
May: Hershey Garden, Hershey PA
For this month's block, Pat takes us to Hershey Garden in Hershey, Pennsylvania. Although Hershey is known mostly for it's chocolate, it also has beautiful gardens that inspired Pat to create this month's beautiful block. Between the roses, gazebos, fountains, and courtyards, this garden is both beautiful and well laid out.
