Daffs So Yellow Reproduction
Spring was never so welcome as in 2020. The daffodils were so profuse and exuberant, Julie made a video of her spring garden. Bringing some flowers inside gave her a daffodil high as she painted this watercolor for the finale.

What is better than one Iris? Two! Togetherness, a wonderful sign of friendship, and just plain double beauty.
Iris is said to stand for faith, hope, courage, wisdom, admiration. Any of these would be a wonderful reason to give this print to a friend --- or yourself. Iris have always been one of my favorite flowers to grow and to paint.

In 1913, for his wife on their golden wedding anniversary, F.W.L. created “The Language of Flowers”, a charming little book cataloguing 700 flowers. In his own writing and illustrations, he ascribed meanings for each kind of flower. It was made in “an era when people found time to express their affection in an individual way,” What did F.W.L. declare the columbine represented? Folly! My original idea for this watercolor was to paint 2 simple blooms. But buds, and their two different kinds of leaves asked to be included, followed by the background, making it a long and jolly Folly.
