It's SPRING! Or at least the calendar tells us it is...
I'm not sure what it's like by you, but here in Atlanta it is cold, windy and just generally crummy. We did have our windows open briefly last week and I put my flowers out when we had a rare glorious day, but now I'm covering them up as we are supposed to have another night of frost headed our way.
But I can't complain too much, I hear those of you up north are dealing with snow, snow and more snow!
So, in lieu of seeing my real roses in bloom, I'm sharing my version of roses in bloom...
This is a project that I recently worked on for an upcoming publication. Here is an "in progress" view...it's got a long way to go yet and I finish up that last rose and then tackle the leaves and background.
What do you think? I'm pretty happy with it so far... I can almost smell the sweet fragrance.
