The violets are blooming in my flower beds. They turn the brown earth green and purple with mats of sweet, innocent harbingers of spring.

Ooh, they are lovely Lin. Your leaves are so well defined and have that curve to them that makes them so real!

So hopeful, and so delicately captured. The purple and green really set each other off!

I love the violets drawing. My violets will be blooming soon. I am inspired by you to draw mine when they arrive.

I love the composition on this one and the beautiful greens and purples. My purple bearded irises are blooming and it's breaking my heart how temporary this period of bloom is. I'm so happy to see all the beauty blooming in your neighborhood via your blog.
