LSC212 Spring Garden

I had exactly one hour to spare for the challenge today. I spent a fair bit of time discovering I have no spring flower stamps *snort*! I guess any excuse to buy more stamps is a good excuse. Then I stumbled on these pussy willows and figured they might be about perfect. Pussy willows are about the very first thing to come out around here. They arrive almost a month before tulips and daffodils.
I love the hope spring brings. I haven't seen any robins yet, but it doesn't mean they aren't here. I bet if I look around, I'll find some.

Late March and early April are our snowiest time of year, so this really is a good vignette of my muddy, barren garden...

Bring on the sun!!

stamps; scene in a garden (SU!)
paper; ever after (cosmo cricket), mud puddle, rope dotted swiss, coconut swirl (bazzill), cold press watercolour paper
ink; timber brown stazon (tsukineko), willow, juniper, latte, rust, hazelnut, lemonade reinkers (adirondack by ranger)

I have resisted buying this set, but it is so pretty! I love how your watercoloring is just so subtle here.
