For the love of flowers

Flowers are one of the things keeping us all going at
the moment.  Toronto is at a very beautiful point in
the year, with one beautiful flowering tree after
another coming into bloom in succession.  So each
walk, and drive, no matter how fraught with worries
about this virus, still going up in Toronto, is
filled with beauty.  And that is miraculous.

I have a few pots of pansies -- definitely one of
my favourite flowers.  And a couple of pots
at the front of the house got slightly searched
by squirrels (I think).  Solution -- move them
to the back porch where the dog keeps a close
eye out for any animals.  And then some water
and they're back to full beauty.

While they are thriving I'm posting this painting
in their honour.  It was a warm/cold -- not hot
day.  But these flowers are so lovely.

Have a loving your flowers day.
