Days 55 and 56

While I was at the grocery store I happened to spot a special on mini daffodils. Suffering from sunlight and warm weather withdraw I placed a pot in my cart without a moments hesitation. This lucky find worked its way into my next two sketches, first in watercolor...

then in pen and ink.

I have to say it was a couple of bucks well spent. And now that the flowers have faded and the leaves are dying back, I'll plant the daffodils in my garden so I can enjoy them again next year.

Those sweet daffodils are cheerful reminders of what is to come.
Our spring is in full bloom and now petals are falling all over the neighbourhood as the rain dampens the moment.
Don't cha LOVE springtime?

MJ, Spring is my favorite season. I love the return of all the colors (we have very gray winters) and the beautiful flowers. Plus I love knowing we have 6 or 7 months of warm weather to look forward to. :)
