Poppies are bloomin'

With spring finally here the yard is bursting with color. We are on the garden tour this year and on April 10-11 there will be a steady stream of people walking through our yard. We have been planting and pruning in hopes that we have the timeing correct for maximum bloom during the tour. It is now a waiting game, to see if the weather will cooperate. Today was glorious and I couldn't help but spend a little time drawing these beautiful flowers that come in so many different colors.  Iceland Poppies in sketch book
