Early Bloomers

Here are some early bloomers from my back garden. Inspiration for my some of my art does come the garden. I delight in the many variations in colour from bloom to bloom. In fact, I have, on occasion, matched the colours to my embroidery threads and dyed fabrics.

I don't remember the names for the first two pictures.

The periwinkle underneath the globe cedar is flourishing. Several years ago my friend, Judith gave me a snip from her garden.

Take a look at some other flowers (quilted, of course):
