just yesterday, between the frogs & peepers & birds at the feeder, these are wonderful signs of Spring...along came a morning of snow showers, we are back to the wintery mood again...silence broken by blowing winds out my window

looked up from my breakfast this morning, & saw this outside the window...what a way to stay my day!

If one is an artist, it helps to have the soul of a gypsy, to stay's also very nice to just stay home for some mindless doodlings

after 2 weeks of living in the city, it's possible to hear & feel the silence in the mountain...well, till the black birds all congregate by the babbling brook, their chatter is almost as loud as rush hour traffic

after a nice warm spring break in Washington,DC, it's back to the arctic air of upstate, NY...there's more than 3,000 cherry trees around the capital, which makes for a memorable visit with lots of painting excursions....the official Cherry Blossom Festival runs from March 28-April 12, 2009

looks like a day of shoveling snow & painting....having warm toes & hands in this weather is about as good as it's going to get...this is the last of my valentine flower, must make a detour to the florist soon

looks like another storm coming thru the mountain...too bad, this is the first time my driveway is clear of snow this whole winter
