Spring Quote with Watercolor Flowers

I am definitely looking forward to spring! We had a snow flurry today after enjoying 80 degree weather last week. gah! So ready for nice weather! So for this month’s Canon post, I decided to add some pretty pink watercolor flowers to a spring quote from Lady Bird Johnson. It took me several tries to get the watercolor just right, and I am really proud of how it turned out!
