spring has sprung!

it's amazing what a difference
a week will make in the garden
with the unseasonably high temperatures and
a few rain showers
and i can actually watch my garden grow!
everything has sprouted up and out
my garden has really expanded over the past 10 years
last year i dug up 500 "babies" and
sold them at my plant sale
this year i'll be able to work a little less

above, one of my pencil sketches
played with some color in ps and added a border

It's always so nice to be able to enjoy the fruits of your labor in the garden the year after you spend a ton of time planting...so satisfying to see everything just sprout into place! I see you have ferns...they sure spread like crazy.. but i love 'em! Enjoy...

That's a really nice daffodile. Wasn't that warm weather beautiful? We got it over here too. So you're a gardener? What a creative girl! We're renting, so no garden of our own yet, but the tulips are blooming in the back yard. Bulbs and roses are my favorites.

It's a lovely drawing - and it really is nice that spring finally arrive at the northern latitudes.

What a pretty drawing!
We move to a new (to us) house in June and I can't wait to get my hands in the dirt!
