March 2017 Plant Parade Challenge

MARCH 2017 PLANT PARADE CHALLENGE

Hello all! I'm Virginie (SnapV) and I'll be hosting the Plant Parade Challenge this month!

The subject this month is what is to me the symbol of Spring. I know it isn't spring yet but I'm really sick of winter so I decided that, at least on here, it would be! So the topic is:

LILACS!

There are few rules:
Any medium
Any size
Reveal day for posting is 25th March or any day after that.

We can discuss the subject, offer additional references for others, ask advice but we may not show any work associated with the challenge!!

I hope many of you will participate and enjoy the topic

Here are a few images from myself and the RIL but don't hesitate to add your own references if you wish:

I've just posted your February Gallery. Many thanks to Lil/ArtsyMom for Hosting. Sorry the Gallery is a little late. Here's the link if you want to take a look at your beautiful February entries. Well done everyone!

Love the aroma of just blooming lilacs and have a white colored tree at front of the house. Thanks for hosting and thanks for making a gallery, Viv!

Re: March 2017 Plant Parade Challenge

Lovely! A little more labour intensive perhaps, and I have 2 other things on the go. But it looks so warming. Ah!

We'll see if I can sketch something. THanks for this great choice of ref pics.
