Spring seasonal studies

I had a panicked thought -that I hadn't done any seasonal sketches recently. I had sketched a view and day to day items, things in the house, pot plants and still life type compositions and not my favourites - things growing at this time of year.
And then I looked through my camera roll and on my iPad. Here are 5 studies I have done recently.

First up is the Forsythia - just coming into bloom. I have drawn this one on the iPad. 
I also found some larch flowers last week - an absolute favourite. I drew these on the iPad too. I wanted to do a time-lapse video of the drawing but it's a bit blurry so I'll look at the settings and try again with another!
Then the following three sketches I did in my sketchbook recently -the Elder leaves emerging...

The witch hazel - this I became fascinated with and will try and draw again more clearly, as I started to understand the design of the plant for the first time.

And finally, another sketch of the hazel catkins, before they dry and go again for another year.
