I went outside today to see if there were any flowers left blooming. In Florida we have a short Winter and then a handful of nice Spring days with bursts of color everywhere. The azaleas…….the bromeliads……and then it all dies………….9 months of HEAT. Not much grows in Summer except the grass and weeds. All of my irises are brown and crispy looking. The lilies look like beef jerky. But this little group of tiny dancers was still celebrating, so I snapped them quickly before the sun was full in the sky.
I will be in my studio painting now for a good long while……..expect some new acrylic work very soon!

Thank you Douglas!
Our spring flowers are almost gone too and frankly we’ve had no real spring yet! That said, we’re looking at near 80 degrees next week so we’ll have summer before spring ever truly arrives! Love the image too!! Shared!
Oh rats! Everyone deserves a little Spring. Yeah it’s 85 today here….Thanks for sharing!
Hi Sharon. I love your use of flowers in your post. We’ve been having a lot rain here in London. I haven’t seen a lot of flowers so thank you for the different pictures of beautiful flowers that reminds me of spring.
You are so welcome! Abstracts are coming as it’s too hot to be outside now.
