Thinking Botanical

 The spring is very slow to arrive up here in Maine... although it seems its just around the corner?! The gardening itch is in full swing and I've been living in these plant studies!  We're anxiously waiting to find out if/where/when we will be moving in the next few months. The first thing I plan to do before even unpacking is starting a small test garden of all the wonderful varieties of heirloom bulbs and flowers to paint from. For now all I can do is arrange them in painitngs!
