I think it might actually be SPRING in Wisconsin! That has me thinking about gardens, grass, and leaves on the trees . . . all three of which would be a welcome sight around here. I've gotten away a few times this winter and it STILL seems like it's been an exceptionally long winter.
Spring makes me think of my mom and how she always welcomed it with open arms. Winters are hard on the elderly and she was no exception. While I was painting this journal page, I was thinking about her and the fond memories I have of going to England together. She loved that country so much - and would often tell me how she would be open to moving to some cobbled little village and living there for two or three months . . . all by herself! Oh, how I miss that amazing lady!
Yesterday, I enjoyed a visit to the Milwaukee Art Museum with a good friend. It was the last day of, "ART IN BLOOM", featuring beautiful flower stands, flower art, and everything that related to spring, all set amongst the paintings in the museum. Such a fun day - thank you Gwen!
We're going for a high of 62 today! That will feel incredible and I plan on poking around my gardens looking for signs of life.
This quote says it all.
"It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade." -Charles Dickens, Great Expectations
