The garden from above

This morning I did a walkthrough in the garden to see what was emerging from the ground in this warm weather. Many of the 200 bulbs I planted in the fall are making an appearance, although nothing is blooming yet. What I did find though, were some flowers that are so tiny that they can only be drawn from above — yellow Coltsfoot that you might mistake for dandelions, bright blue Scilla in giant clumps, and delicate Snowdrops, edging over to my garden from my neighbour’s yard. These tiny discoveries were enough to fill a page in my sketchbook, and hopefully by the time I get out there again there will be hyacinths and daffodils to sketch too.

    I am so envious-we don’t have anything in bloom yet. The house across from us has daffodils while ours are just growingup-no blooms. i So I cam enjoying your flower paintings . BTW, I failed at painting flowers even after watching your class.


  2. Lovely page and views. I can feel the sunlight on these happy blooms.

    These are lovely Shari! So fresh.
    What a relief it is to see flowers sprouting in our Canadian gardens :). Especially in these covid times – we have daffodils & grape hyacinths, a reprieve during our 2nd Stay-at-home order in Toronto!


  5. Good Evening dear friend Shari,

    I love all the sketches, but I have my favorite Snow props.
    It has few colors, but highly impressive.
    I love it really.
