I hope everyone is enjoying this first day of Spring! Even though the temperature is still pretty cool here, the sunshine we are having today is a nice reminder that warmer weather is on its way. And I am still thinking of flowers. Our daffodils have greeted us with their sunshiny blooms and perennials are poking up in our flower garden. Our Cosmos were so cheerful last year. I am looking forward to seeing them return.

We won't have any cosmos until about the middle of July or late, late June. Wow! You get yours early. How fun and nice.

This is so pretty and delicate. There is a lot of detail in so little space. Your watercolors are great too.

Love it and as Carol said, so much detail in a little space. I like these little works of art.

Happy spring to you too, Ann. We're expecting a blizzard in my part of the world! This cosmos is really beautiful - I love the delicate shading you've done.

Oops! Spring slipped up on me! Thanks for the reminder... and the beautiful Cosmos!

Ann said...

Thanks everyone!
Mary, this was from a photo I took of our cosmos last year. It will be July before we see them again here too!
Lynn - a blizzard! I hope you are staying warm :)

This is beautiful. Your work is so serene feeling. I have a billion colored pencils and enjoy using them too. Your work inspires me to "play" with them. Thanks for your recent comment on my blog.
