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.

  1. This one just fits together great. The dark to light background and the clear sharp reflections on the vase. The warm red tone serving to activate the background behind the pink flowers and then again as a reflection on the vase and glass table.

  2. Its a lovely time of year isnt it, you must have a pretty garden! I like the purples and yellows together and the background works well.
