Weekly Puzzler #103: Painted Flower Petals

For those of you just joining us here after signing up at last night’s program, welcome!

Also, just wanted to remind everyone that today’s puzzler is the last chance to qualify for the quarterly drawing–use the comment box below the puzzler to get your guess in by tomorrow at noon and if you’re correct, I will add your name to the drawing to win the sampler pack of greeting cards from my Beauty is Everywhere collection. Good luck! I will email you tomorrow if YOU are the winner! If not this time, keep trying, another collection of correct guesses will begin next weekend.

So in honor of the first day of spring let’s do one of our common spring ephemerals. Do you recognize this lovely flower? Is it growing yet in your neck of the woods? Doesn’t it look like someone hand-painted these? Use the comment box below to identify this flower then check back next weekend to see if you were correct!owl-4094
