Floral Good Friday... PPF

I'm going to keep today's post to the minimum because it is the long Easter weekend and the weather for today at last is fantastic.
I want to enjoy it because there's talk that rain is on the way tomorrow.

I thought I'd show you the finished 'Hello Spring' that I started last week.
I was inspired by watching the tutorial from Carrie's Misfit Artist blog.

Plus I wanted to practice some lettering too. I did think I might have managed to paint an Happy Easter scene, but I went outdoors yesterday and cut the lawn instead. 
The garden is just waking up, so it'll be all go soon.
I really enjoyed painting these flowers and at some point that I'm not sure when, I took a different route and let my brush do as it pleased. 
It's always a little scary going off-piste, but then exciting things can happen. 
I'm pleased with the end result.
Keeping to the spring theme, I thought I'd take you on a little walk before you go.
Not quite an Easter egg hunt... that'll come on Sunday.
Here's Muffin enjoying the new smells of spring and taking an absolute age to walk 20 paw paces.
Stop and sniff on a whole new level.
But if there's sun anywhere... you can be sure she'll find it!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone.
Happy Easter to all that celebrate.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon.
As usual I'm joining in with the Paint Party Friday link.
