Blooming New Year

2012! Wow! Hard to believe 2011 went by so fast.
The holidays were so crazy busy I have hardly had time for a typical New Year's reflection or introspection. I do plan on making my goals, just haven't had the chance yet.....
This painting is of a little mum - a resilient little thing - still blooming into our unusually mild winter. I had brought it home from my parents' anniversary party way back in June, cut it down and planned on planting it so it would bloom in the fall. I never got around to planting it (which is probably why it survived our October snowstorm ;-) and it has bloomed 3 times since - the last time being early December! I cut off a few flowers and put them in some of my little vases in my kitchen window. It is amazing how long they last.
