Crocus - Lin Frye
In homage to the warming trend we're having this weekend and the glimpse of a few crocuses at the arboretum, I painted this loose, bunch of bright flowers. I wanted a less rigid, less defined interpretation, so some of my edges aren't as 'exact' as they might be. The crocus colors cheer me and the bits of purple give me hope that spring is truly on its way.
However, the forecast for next week is for us to have another 'event' -- rain that just might be another snowfall. It is truly unusual for this part of NC to experience so much snow and such cold winters.
BTW, our 'Plant a Row' class was well attended -- including the media! And our volunteers had a BALL in the greenhouse where our temps were a balmy mid 70F!
