Many of us love the spring time very much, so here is a little reminder. Will you plant flowers indoors for having them on your balcony or garden? Or do you enjoy them in a park? This is my painting from 1995.. I have no idea how to turn the painting the right way..

Whether it's the right way up or not it's a beautiful painting. I start my begonias on my window sills in February.

Yes, I think my mom planted the begonias in February. We had really beautiful begonias..

Beautiful painting. That is actually the way I like to enjoy flowers so I don't have to water them. My neighbor is a gardener so I enjoy flowers down my yard.

Thank you - when we pick the flowers, we can put them on a table and later put them in a vase.. Well, you have a good neighbor..

@buenavida I love my neighbors. They are really nice people. The gardener comes over in my yard and fertilizes my citrus trees. Sometimes he will even water them. I love looking at his yard.

Great painting. However, I think if you want flowers for spring, you need to have planted the bulbs before now.

Yeah, that is right - the bulbs have to be planted in the autumn, I think..

Yes, I love the Spring too.. We will soon be there. Better enjoy the thought in advance and maybe look at photos and paintings until it comes..

@buenavida , that is a beautiful painting! I enjoy flowers in a park, because I do not have a green thumb at all.

I'm glad you like it - even if it is not turned right.. Perhaps I should put more paintings here.. I had a great teacher that time and she taught us some tricks that made the painting easier..

I'm glad you are already thinking of spring but winter has not even really begun here. Continue being positive! Your painting is great and it seems to me that the view you have painted is as seen from above and therefore all directions are similar. I hope this makes sense?
