Watercolor Flowers and Glasswork

 Flowers and Glasswork  

As soon as spring comes around, I run out and get some wild flowers.  Here in Spain, they grow wild everywhere.

In 2016 there were flowers everywhere, it was an early spring and it lasted a long period.  Everything seemed to be in bloom at once.
