The first coltsfoots

They have emerged again. as from total emptiness, from ugly grey and brownish ground: first coltsfoots.

They don´t hesitate, they are bravely yellow. They are exclamation marks: do you still dare to doubt that spring is not here!

They have funny latin name: Tussilago farfara.

Faded daffodils after the Easter

The daffodils of the Easter have withered, but just now they look interesting.

I draw them with watercolorpencils. Before that I used masking fluid, which has to be rubbed afterwards. White lines appear after the masking fluid has been rubberized.
