The end of the outside flowers

For people who love flowers, subzero weather means the final end
of the garden.  Ours is not spectacular, but the flowers that grew 
this summer cheered us immensely every time we opened the
kitchen door and saw them.

The last of the garden flowers hung in for a week in vases inside,
and they are finally, finally done.  So now what? It's time to visit our
wonderful flower people to buy the glorious flowers that get
us through the winter so beautifully. 

Tonight's sketch is of tulips -- magical flowers for sure.  I'm
tempted to colour this in.  Maybe another day.

Have a loving your life day.
