A classic treatment! Clever use of watermark on each of the pics. Great take Emma!

Even though it's not a cornflower, I love the forget-me-not-blue in the last picture! :)

Well, there is no stopping you today, is there?
Daisy chains already?
Love the shape of your little girl's [pardon me: big girl's] face. So sweet.

This makes me feel like spending a little time in the yard. Wonderful pics and poems I feel lighter somehow.

So lovely, Emma. Perfectly illustrates my wildflower garden, in which blossoms take turns springing up, displaying their colors and then fading as the next act takes center stage.

Blue and purple, my two favorite colors. Cornflowers, so missed as we are barely in Spring and now, here in Wisconsin, it was 43 yesterday, 84 tomorrow!

All these shades of nature's palette, as you put it, are beautiful, but the blue beads were my favorite. Love the comments on each, as well! Amy

A beautiful flower garden you've painted here, Emma. Even the weeds, especially if they produce flowers.
