We have CROCUS!



I saw my first crocus of the year this afternoon, hiding out with the winter aconite. The smell was heavenly. I didn't realize how fragrant they are. Love the orange color too.

Here's our kitty, Pumpkin, doing his best meercat impression while watching birds from my art table.



Lastly a small cabinet door that I am painting in my folk art style for the PFATT Marketplace. It's going to have all sorts of spring colors and patterns around the frame when I'm finished!

Welcome to spring! I knew that it would reach you sooner or later. The warm, bright colors are so pretty.

Your cat is a dear- relaxed but watchful.

Pumpkin absolutely cracks me up! What a beautiful crocus. I see daffodils finally poking out down here and cannot wait!

Linda said...

You're so luck--a crocus! They ARE fragrant. I wish I'd get something coming up. I'm wondering if the voles didn't eat my bulbs.

That painting is looking good!!! I want to see it when you're done with the frame. :)

you just have to love a cat at a window... I think it is impossible to take the wild out of them...

Pumpkin is adorable!!! Every spring I wish that I had planted crocus bulbs and I forget every fall to do it. Ugh.
