Sunday Sketches....Spring forward!!!

Hi Everyone....

tonight the clocks move ahead and I am hoping that we too are moving ahead...into Spring....so I just did this super fast sketch of one of the early bloomers that make me so happy......the lovely and prolific Daffodil.....no matter what these bulbs thrive winter after winter and nothing eats them or does any harm to them....and they are super happy just like the sun......I just had to do something Spring inspired for my Sunday Sketch this week....as I hear we are getting some warm weather around here and I can't wait!!!!



These are some photos from last year....but I can see all my bulbs growing already...and I can't wait to see what they have to show me!!!! Don't forget to move your clocks ahead an hour....I am not a big fan of losing an hour....but we must do what we must....will have to make up for it slowly all week!!!

Sharing this post with all of my friends over at Sunday Sketches!!!
Happy Sunday Everyone....and Happy Creating!!!

I wish we could have daffodils but it is just too hot for them here, even in winter so I will enjoy yours instead... love how your quick sketches are so perfect....xx

Il est bon de voir apparaître les premières fleurs du printemps... Ce sont généralement les plus belles, les plus fraîches...
Ton illustration leur rend un bel hommage... Tes jonquilles ont une grâce qui illumine mon coeur. Elles illuminent ma journée.
Gros bisous ma chère Diana.

Hi Diana,

Always takes a little time to adjust to the hour time difference. We are soon going to revert back here.
I love the pretty daffodils and know that Spring must be there soon.

Happy new week
Hugs
