Illustration Friday: SPRING

My sketch for the this weeks' ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY theme which is SPRING. The Iris' and Hostas are starting to grow at a fast pace and today I saw my first Dandelion of the season. We have quite a lot of Henbit in our yard also. The lawn care companies leave flyers on my mail box telling me that it's a weed and should be dealt with as such but I sort of like the look of them with their dark green leafs and dainty purple flowers.
I also posted a PhotoShop enhanced version of the sketch on my blog but I think that I overdid it somewhat. You can see it here. I prefer this one though.

This is delicately colored and lovely. I'm with you; I tend to like the wildflowers, even if they are weeds. Beautiful illustration!

this is so lovely! I like the leaves folding over each other and the colours are so beautiful and very spring like! I love all plants and flowers!
