A Few More Spring Sketches

All winter long I wait anxiously for spring. Every time I shovel snow off the walk or scrape ice off my car windshield, I dream of tulips and lilacs and daffodils. The sight of pansies for sale outside the Kroger store sends my heart a-flutter. In fact, I recently bought some and planted them in my front porch urns. Delightful!

But every year, when spring finally arrives, it goes by so fast! Here we are, a month into it, and it is skating along like an olympic skier going downhill at breakneck speed. Soon the spring blooms will give way to summer plants like roses and daylilies and the hosta that keep the garden green. I love them, too.

Meanwhile I filled a few sketchbook pages with some spring glory. Daffs, of course…

And that harbinger of warm weather, the American Robin…

And the earliest little delicate bloom, the crocus…

Oh how I love them all and enjoy their sweet, short bursts of glory. It’s just the beginning of the parade of blossoms that go on until the next winter falls. I always enjoy commemorating that parade in my sketchbook each year as it goes by. I treasure every year of this parade even more than the last.
