We had quite the winter this year. There were a lot of snow storms. A blanket of white snow seemed to cover everything.
We’re now into March and so the weather and landscape around us has changed.
The snow has since melted and the brown ground revealed. It’s around this time that the first flowers of spring appear. They are called Crocuses. Green leaves pull up through the ground and the flower petals form.
I marvel at the Crocuses resilience. The weather in March can be quite varied.
Some days are very cold and windy, while other days are warm with a light breeze. These flowers grow and bloom at this time of year and manage through the weather. On cold days, the flowers close up their petals against the cold. When the days warm up, they open up their beautiful petals to the suns rays, soaking in the nourishment. They exhibit a true hardiness at a season when the weather changes a lot.
They are a good example of the flexibility and resilience of life.
“Waterfall, NH” is a scratch board image. I did this image from a photo I took when we were visiting New Hampshire. We visited a waterfall.
The water has smoothed and formed a path as it flowed over the rocks.
Natures artwork is something to take in.
You can see more scratch boards at my scratch board page.

Darla Dixon organized a group of artists who will create no-charge compassionate portraits for the families who have lost a loved one in Operation Iraqi Freedom/Operation Enduring Freedom. We are looking for artists to join our efforts, and also for non-artists who will help spread the word about this free service and token of our gratitude to families who have sacrificed so much.”
