A Pot of Purple Posies

The sun came out yesterday just about lunchtime, and temperatures rose with it ... a beautiful day spent running errands .... not much time to paint.

But everywhere we went, flowers! From dandelions to azaleas ... spring is emerging ....! Trees are shedding pollen and there are still many without their green dresses, but under incredibly blue skies, wee bits of green can be seen everywhere!

Temps this morning have started out cool, and those furious winds of yesterday have calmed down to soft whispers ....

I so hope to get some painting time in today!

Sounds like we are having the same weather you are. It is so nice to see the sun today after the rain yesterday but it's BRRRRRRRRRR cold today and will be for a few days. So glad you will get to paint today and I like what you've posted today -- quite different from what you usually do.

This looks like flowers you'd see on the steps or balconies in Italy!!! Nice job on the flowers and the pot. Glad it is nice there. We had lots of rain yesterday and I was walking around in Manhattan...great planning!
