Pansies crossing the line

Back to pansies today -- admittedly an obsession, and a
pleasure. The long, glorious spring that everyone in my
city is complaining about has been perfect for these
beauties.  Now the pots out front are packed with pansies
that get larger and more beautiful every day.  I come
home and see them on the steps, and I want to
paint them.

So I did again.  This time these wonderful flowers crossed
the cut off line on the watercolour pad, and I don't care.
Soon I will have a wall of pansy paintings behind me,
in a photo like the wall of daschunds behind David Hockney
in a book I got for my birthday.   -- At this point in this post
my computer bumped into the cream jug holding the pansies
(yes they are real), and the water covered about half of
our kitchen.  Cleaned up now!

Time to say goodnight.

Have a loving the flowers in your life day.
