I believe tulips might be my favorite flower. It's still a bit early for tulip blooms in my part of the world, but their green foliage is beginning to poke through the brown earth - it won't be long before they appear. These tulip blooms came from my local market. I love them so because they bring a promise of spring.

This morning I read that spring has arrived earlier than ever in much of the country. Here in the Pacific Northwest, however, we still contend with rain, sleet, and cold dreary weather. On the up side, there are some harbingers of spring. Crocuses and tulips are beginning to pop up everywhere, and we're seeing more birds sampling the seeds in the birdfeeder.
The lovely thing about painting is that one can contemplate spring on the canvas at any time. I found these primroses at the local grocery store and thought they looked great in front of a lavender-blue background. They brought springtime to my soul.
