January Garden
11" x 14"
Oil

I usually get the bulbs I force in the winter into the ground in the spring, but this last spring was a busy one with Dan's graduation and with being on the road for painting events. So the pot was forgotten in a corner by the back door. After nine months of neglect and no water, the bulbs started to sprout again on their own! I gave them some water and put then in a dark cool spot in the basement and here they are. The fragrance and color warms up a January day.

So beautiful, I can feel the roughness of the clay pot.

Thanks, Jacq. Now that it's up I can see some things that need fixing...
