We went to the market today, and our favourite farmer friend
was selling pots of pansies.  Being a big pansy fan, I bought
some and tried painting them in the pot, but it wasn't going
to work.  

So I moved the flowers that were ready into a cream jug, and
started on this.  I will finish it tomorrow.  But it was a pleasure
to see the first flowers of the spring. So delicate and vibrant
at the same time.

Have a loving what you do day.
