Woodland and " daughters of the wind"

Plein air oil on canvas 20 x 16" NFS
The ethereal wood anemones," daughters of the wind" can be seen at the moment on the floor of the ..... wood. They open to welcome the sun and close at dawn. They can be seen in profusion at this time with celendines also evident, though less so. Celendines are a wonderful multipetalled as indeed are the wood anemones ( must check to see if they give us a Fibonacci number ). Celendines have a  yellow flower emerging from dark green foilage which disappears soon after flowering. It was a lovely day, warm and sunny after a night of heavy rain. The rain making the woodland paths squelchy in places. One had to be careful walking through the wood not to knock holly branches as this would result in a shower of rain. The birds are really beginning to sing as spring marches on. Woodpeckers drummend in the distance. As I was setting up Barbara said hello as she passed walking her dog and I said how much we were looking forward to getting our puppy. After finishing I met a man at the edge of the wood who pointed out a treecreeper. A small but special little bird with peculiar habits.
