While running errands recently, the weather was so nice, I decided to take a look at the garden department to see what was available.  They had some very tempting geraniums for sale, but I restrained myself from buying any.  As eager as I am to start on this year’s annual garden because of the unusually warm weather we’re having, I’m better off waiting until the danger of frost has passed and the garden centers have a wider variety of annuals for sale.

In honor of the early-blooming daffodils in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Ann Thompson Nemcosky issued a daffodil challenge this month.  This is the first time I’ve seen a challenge issued by an artist whose blog I follow, so I decided to participate.

The online art community is so supportive and inspirational.  I can’t wait to see the daffodil interpretations of the other artists who participate in Ann’s challenge.

UPDATE:  Ann has posted all of the daffodil artwork submitted for the challenge.  It’s interesting to see the different media used and each of the interpretations.  Congratulations and well done to everyone who participated.
