1   This morning’s post brought me another little treasure, a painting of Louise O’Hara’s called Fritillaria and it is truly beautiful.You can see more of her work here and on her website.

P.S.    2/4/14     My SIL in Atlanta, Georgia tells me that the beautiful little pink flower is a Chionodoxa – Forbesii, sometimes known as Glory of the Snow. Thank you, V.
