A beautiful quote with a lovely assortment of flowers.
They are all beautiful and speak Spring but the cosmos in their delicate dance against the light soft green of the background are my fav :) Beautiful work!

Hey Anne, did you say that you had a birthday? I think I saw that, Happy Birthday, sweet friend. I know so many bloggers who are March babies, it's rather interesting.
Have a really great week.
