Spring Flowers



Just painting for my own pleasure today on a nice fat square of silk and some new white paint.
Lilly of the Valley has the most wonderful fragrance which painting can't capture!


If you walked into your garden now, which flowers would you like to find, pick and bring in to brighten up your home?

  1. I'll be heading out later to pick the daffodils knocked down by last night/this morning's snow.

    1. Random thought: I once read that you can preserve daffodils by submerging in laundry powder until they dry out - have never tried it - not enough washing powder to spare!

  6. Forget - me - nots are all that's available in the garden right now, for me! But that suitsOkay,...I love their mix of blues and mauves.
    Your mixed flower silk painting is just lovely.
    Lily of the Valley smells heavenly, doesn't it? Soon there will be a patch, (semi-wild) in my woods, I have to ration myself to just a few...
