A Touch of Spring

We didn't get much spring in the mid-south of the USA. The weather went from cold to HOT overnight. The trees, flowers, everything woke up and blossomed much earlier than usual. Wouldn't you guess that just as everything is in full bloom, Jack Frost pays us a destructive visit; and everything dies - quickly. I managed to get these blossoms just a day before the cold snap. Enjoy painting them.

Re: A Touch of Spring

This always happens!

Start off, thinking that flowers are so booooring.
Then I get all interested and don't want to stop.
(I am holding you responsible for this, Janet!)

Re: A Touch of Spring
