Stop and Smell the Daffodils
Spring has officially sprung, Happy Vernal Equinox to you all (a few days late). While the daffodils have been blooming here in Northern California for a month or so it doesn’t really feel like spring until the time change gives us a longer evening, time to poke around the yard or the neighborhood. Spring is full of hope and expectation, pondering what to plant in the garden or anticipating the opening of your local farmers market. We start thinking about asparagus and snow peas – enough of the butternut squash! The length of the day the lightness of the air all combines to lift the spirit in this wondrous cycle of seasons, thank goodness for the this earthly change of attitude to remind us once again that the darkness leads to light, the frost struck morning turns to balmy spring evening, all praise the orbit of the earth around the sun, Spring is here!
These three pieces were drawn on my iPad three odes to Spring, Cala Lily, Daffodil and a white daffodil sized flower that I would like to know the name of…anybody?
