Flowers for the cold streets
Our streets have been a lot warmer recently, almost too warm for the season but it doesn't mean we don't need the flowers. We do! Spring flowers are possibly the most encouraging and inspiring of any, and the first sight of them after a long and cold winter is a joy.
This is a painting in the naive style of Raija Nokkala from Finland and the title is, "Kukkia kylmille kaduille" or "Flowers for the cold streets". I like the idea of someone who might have the job of welcoming the new season with flowers and leaving them in the streets needing to be warmed.
