Isn't that wonderful!
When I returned home yesterday after 4 days it was sunny and I saw green buds on the trees. Spring was in the air!
Today was cold but sunny , but it can't be long now!

I love your painting! very good!

Wonderful blue crocus. I know it's purple, but it's periwinkle, my favorite!

First look, the centre core yellow
against the navy blue petals really stand out, soothing my heart desire to very calm and cheerful level.

Second look, this reminds me of hope. Thank you, my hope is renew all over again Lisa.

Indeed an inpriring flower beauty.

Take care and till the next visit.

Cheerioo.
