Daffodils - Here - There - Everywhere

Welcome.  I am so happy that you stopped by for a visit.  My garden gate is always open for you to come in and sit and relax with a cup of tea while I share with you the inspirations for my art.We have had much needed rain and finally a little Winter weather in Southern California and the flowers are singing for joy.

Let's join Bentley, my Studio Assistant, in the garden to see what is in bloom and just waiting to be painted.















After I checked out my garden I stopped by one of my favorite garden shops, Roger's Gardens, and to my delight found they were having their annual Spring Daffodil show.



It was early in the morning and they were just setting up the show.  I had no idea that there were so many varieties of Daffodils!  I learned that there are 13 descriptive divisions of Daffodils and l,000's of hybrids.



                               They were just staring to sort the varieties for the show.




My photo of a few varieties is blurred  - it shows how they are displayed for the show.




I love the way the yellow Daffodils look next to the purple Pansies in my garden and am going to paint them.

Thank you for stopping  by.  I sincerely appreciate your visits, e-mails, comments and those who follow my blog.  Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to see me paint something special.

Have a lovely week.   Blessings, Erin

Your painting is beautiful. I wish we could see some flowers here. All we have is snow snow snow.

What a stunning painting, Erin. And those daffodils give me hope for spring. Not soon here, but eventually.

A hug to dear Bentley!

I had no idea there were so many varieties of daffodils.

Mine bloomed in January because they were confused about the weather.
