Iris and forget me not

aThis is the first of the Iris to come out, I forget its name but it always gives me lovely early blooms and with the forget me nots also coming out it was too nice not to sketch. I will curse the forget me nots in another couple of months as they will cling to me and be transferred all around the garden but now when they are fresh and lovely they look stunning.
Done in a mix of watercolour pencils.
I am walking, just finding the same trees and grass rather boring to sketch and we have had rather a lot of rain (hooray!) so I am back to getting wet again.
Not like Julie Oakleys lovely blog at the moment, full of Greek sunshine.

LOVELY!!! GREAT color! Irises are one of our first spring flowers too and it always heralds the summer on its way! GOOD JOB!

Lots of flowers are coming out now. It certainly is spring time. You also do things with stitching and textiles don't you? Can we see some of your quilt designs?
