A wonderful day

Gather ye pansies while ye can!

Don't get bored with my excitement for the good times. 
Like you I have plenty of days that are not the best, but
today was lovely. We were heading out to the beautiful
park we love under sunny skies, and before we left had
an impromptu visit from the youngest members of the
family. How sweet.

There is a ton of work to do tomorrow, so it was nice to
also take a walk by the lake, get some photos for upcoming
painting reference, and see the swans, geese, seagulls and ducks,
who seem to wait for us to feed them. 

And we did manage to get pansies -- not exactly like
these, but very pretty. A nice change for our neighbours
from the Christmas trees, which have actually not yet
come down off the front and back porches. 

Have a loving your life day.

Beautiful painting❣️❣️❣️❣️❣️
Pansies are such happy flowers and just keep giving joy. I have one or two from last year and I bought new yellow and dark blue plants.

Hi Evelyn,

Thank you so much. So your pansies keep coming back? How wonderful.
I couldn't get exactly what I want yet, but they
are beautiful, and just the sight of flowers makes me both happy and
surprised. Is it spring?
