Another Posy

5"X7" Oil on panel

It must be that time of year. I did a couple of these last year about this time. There are violets and grape-hyacinths from the lawn (well, patch of weeds that masquerades as a lawn). There are perennial candytuft and something that calls itself rock-cress, both of these are crucifers so distantly related to cabbage, I guess.

I was delighted to see today that I have a couple of paperwhites in my front garden, I must have planted them by accident. I threw in a bunch of bulbs that I found in the shed last Fall but wouldn't have bothered with these if I had realized what they were. Everyone says not to bother because they never survive this far north.
