Valiant Hyacinth, Acrylic on Canvas Panel, 20" x 16"
Springtime, this year, has been unpredictable, at best. Spring. WINTER. Maybe Spring? No, Winter, still. Ah! Finally Spring!
A couple of weeks ago, I was fascinated watching a very brave hyacinth decide it had waited long enough. It sent up lovely green leaves in record time. It's stem strengthening to hold the flower buds. Then, it started to bloom. It was very brave. But winter's last stand was just too much for this valiant hyacinth.
