Hyacinth and Bee

Many years ago, I planted these glorious pink hyacinth.  Every year they are among the first bloomers in the garden - and their fragrance is so heady!   I don't think I've ever painted them before,  so today I am doing so with my watercolors.  I am using very wet paint, and dropping in stronger pigment to mingle and move where it will.   This is the beauty of watercolor, unpredictable and free flowing.  I hope to paint several of these hyacinth before they vanish for another year.   This painting makes the 1185th in 1185 days.
