Emerging from winter

This has been the longest, coldest winter in Victoria that I can recall. So when blooms finally start to emerge and stretch towards the light, I follow their cue. Here are a few shots from a recent foray in the garden and studio with my friend Erin from A Fox in the Flowers. We played with hellebores, spirea, tulips, forsythia, fritillary, narcissus and other spring branches.
