  19. Perfect! The color combo is like those we see on paintings. Wait... is that a ring on a twig underneath, left lower side (second photo)? Maybe I'm just dreaming a fairy left it there. Have a lovely week!

  21. Beautiful crocuses (croci?)...such a wonderful deep blue. We don't see those here in Florida (too hot -- used to love to see them when we lived in Oregon).
