While working on this wide border for a playhouse painting, it reminded me of the colors of spring. The bright greens of the budding trees and new grass. The violets and periwinkle blues of those first Hyacinths with their rich, heady scent.
While we will have several more weeks of winter here- a visit to my local garden center may be just what I need to bring a little spring color inside. Perhaps a pot of happy-faced, sunshine daffodils or maybe a few brightly colored, sweet scented Primrose. There may be Freesia, with their gentle, spicy fragrance. There will certainly be small pots of Shamrocks~ A bit of Luck o' the Irish for upcoming St. Patrick's Day.
