daffodil and scilla

I had another fairly quick walk this afternoon as I have been looking in my mothers boxes and sorting out what I want to keep and what the children can have. I think they can have pot luck boxes and just get what is in the ones they choose.
I think with the change in the weather my hands and knees are playing up again, so I had picked these to find a bunch I could paint, not much in the garden at all, so I ended up very quickly, in poor light painting these. The daffodils are almost over but I found this orange capped one and the Spanish bluebells, not proper English bluebells are out in some areas, they are fun to paint, felt more pleased with those than the daffs.
I thought I was going to have more time to paint today but it didnt happen.

Yes the bluebells are very pretty - we are having lovely rain here but not enough

Daffodils - they have a new meaning these days. In one of our city parks they usually plant hundreds of them as a reminder for Daffodil Day, but this year I noticed different flowers there. Lots of bulbs are out now, and I've even sold a few pots to people passing by. We sell potted plants but with the water restrictions I haven't looked after them well this season.

A lovely light hand. Nice placement and beautiful colour contrasts. Better than the real thing!
