The Promise of Spring

Lois Mailou Jones (Harlem Renaissance artist, 1905-1998)  My Mother's Hats 1943

Thinking of grandmother's house & the promise of spring...

Spring Is Coming

Franz Xavier Winterhalter (German Academic Painter, 1805-c 1873) The Spring

Even though it is chilly today & the weather is mercurial, I can definitely feel spring in the air. Just outside my window this morning, some of the birds are ignoring the seed we put out for them & are heading up to the delicate tips of branches to eat the tender new buds. The sky is bright & clear.
