Actual Size (Arrival of Spring, continued)

There is a wide variety of daffodils blooming in my garden these days. Everything from huge blooms about 4 inches across to tiny ones smaller than a fingernail, from the classic yellow daffodil to scented white clusters of pillowy petals. This double-page sketch shows just a few, drawn at actual size in an A5 sketchbook.

ERRATUM: In my last post I was mistaken in the title of David Hockney’s latest book. The title is actually “Spring Cannot be Cancelled.”

  1. Yaffe ❣ ( as they say in Israel)

    *Yaffe* is a *Hebrew* word meaning “beautiful” It is spelled Yud Feh Heh, and properly pronounced as ya-FEH. Other transliterations of this word into the Latin alphabet include Yoffe, Jaffe, Jaffa, Joffe, Yaffa etc. The feminine equivalent, ya-FAH, is a common girl’s first name in Israel.
