Oops, this one’s coming a little late. Sorry about that! I’ll blame it on being distracted by my birthday and the August long weekend ;)
Whenever I make monthly wallpapers, I try to think of some symbolism that goes along with the month in question.
This time, though, I’m keeping it simple. It’s summer! It’s warm and sunny! Yay!
Hey, we’re halfway through the year already! How did that happen?!
Also, did you know that every full moon has a corresponding name and that the one that happens in June is called the Strawberry Moon? Neither did I until recently, but I like it. In some places the full moon is June is known as the Rose Moon instead but I thought that strawberries would make a better wallpaper, so Strawberry Moon it is.
P.S. These strawberry illustrations are in the public domain and they come from a book called “Biggle Berry Book” from 1899!
It’s May! I thought I wasn’t going to go all floral with my wallpapers this year, but I can’t help it this time because the flowers are starting to come out here and I’m pretty excited about it. I also couldn’t help myself with the pink flowers because this is around the time of year where the cherry blossom trees come out in full force in High Park, and just like every other person with a camera in the city, I’ll probably be there taking photos before they all come down. That, and taking photos of the people taking photos because that’s also a thing I like to do. ;D
Happy (Easter) Monday! It’s a new month, which of course means it’s new wallpaper time. My aim this year was to get every wallpaper out on the 1st of the month, or if that fell on a weekend, the first Monday of the month, but sometimes life and/or client work gets in the way of even the best intentions! At least I didn’t prank you on April Fool’s Day again. ;D
And if you want last April’s wallpaper instead, you can get it here.
