So many flowers, so little time...until they fade and wither. Every type of flower that I love most to draw is blooming right now. In a typical midwestern springtime, the temperatures will suddenly soar and these flowers, more suited to an English garden will dry up. So right now, hurry and draw! I have some huge bearded irises (my top favorite) and poppies, lilacs, tulips, and, oh! peonies!
