Snowmen Holding Bouquets

Today was a great painting day.
It was very very cold and it snowed all afternoon.
A beautiful white day
with 5 inches of new snow.
I finished up 2 paintings I had been working on
One on a dark background and
One on a light background.
A beautiful day to stay inside
looking out the window
with a paint brush in my hand.
It is great to have some backgrounds ready to paint on.
You need to be ready when the time is right.
What a beautiful night,
The moon is full,
and everything is covered with a thick white blanket of snow.
Snowmen holding bouquets tied with white ribbons.
All the white flowers are dancing in my head.
Hollyhocks, Daisies,
Flocks, Geraniums, Lily of the Valley,
Hydrangeas, Tulips, Narcissus,
Snowdrops, Creeping Flocks, Petunias,
Mums, Carolina Jasmine,
Roses, Roses, Roses and more Roses,
Lilies, Zinnias, Asters,
Iris, Salvia,
Dogwood, Lilacs, Crepe Myrtle,
and the list goes on.
As I go to sleep tonight my imagination
will go wild as
I dream of the white flowers surrounded by soft greens
dancing all around me.
