Wildflowers in Winter -

In early January, Elizabeth Joy brought some spring pleasure into our dreary winter days by creating a Wildflowers In Winter fun meme. I wasn't able to participate in every week's theme, but reveled in the ones I joined.

Last week was a contest for kids art. I missed the deadline - but I want to share my grand kids talents, nonetheless.

The first flower drawing was created by my sweet little Buttercup (4 1/2). Jammin' (almost 7) presented me with the second one.



This must be vinca.
I'm sure this is quince...and tulips.


This week's theme is THE FIRST FLOWER OF SPRING.

Last Sunday I walked up the creek and found this Oregon Grape ready to burst into yellow blossoms.


I can't wait to go walking this weekend.

Thank you, Elizabeth Joy, for including all of us in your prescription to cure the winter blahs.

Hi Pamela,
Have a great walk this weekend. THOSE blossoms look just ready to pop open! I think I convinced the hubby to walk up into the foothills this weekend instead of the beach. Hopefully we'll see some wildflowers and not rattlesnakes...

The kids' stuff is adorable.

You are such a talented photographer, Pamela. I love every picture you post.

Looks like Jammin' is using Miracle Gro!

I look forward to your photos of buds and blossoms. We won't have those for about 6 weeks yet!

I can't imagine being able to see all those beautiful flowers on a daily basis. You're so lucky!

Those drawings are great! True artists just like Grandma!

Flowers already?! I admit I feel envious. (sigh)

Now that is high art, Pamela. I'm almost feeling springy, but it's that snow and ice that keep me from giving my whole heart to it.

How unique, and how pretty!

My flowers are still covered by snow. Love the drawings!

Both those kids can draw! Poor little curly mop go ther artistic ability from me. And that's one thing I didn't inherit from you.

Enjoy your walk. While you are walking amongst the flowers, I'll be strolling along side the waves.

Buttercup is finally coming into her own with drawing - you can actually tell now what it is she drew!

So - Curly Mop will get there quite soon, I'm sure.

Yeah, I thought spring was making its way. 70 degree days.
Then snow.
And now more snow.
What on earth?

You have the best grandchildren! I love their drawings!

It looks like things are waking up where you live, maybe they will soon here too. :)
Simply Jenn said…
Beautiful! They are so young to be so definite with their flowers. You and their mamas are teaching them well.

Hvae those masterpieces matted and framed.
I'm so ready for spring. Great photo.
I'm going to post a link to our daughter-in-law's blog tomorrow. They are expecting and she has sonogram pics up, too.
Loved looking at the baby at Karmyn's.

Wonderful little artists there. I have been thinking of planting grapes here. It can work, but I would have a bunch of work to do. Maybe in my spare time;-).
