Three weeks later.....

it's hard to believe that the snow is gone and the grass is green and I've been planting spring flowers for the past week!!!
We started the month of April with six or more inches of snow in the backyard...and we're ending the month with flowers and sunshine!!  After the winter we just had...I'd have never believed it.

Yes...this is the same yard....

I can also tell that spring has finally arrived by the fact that I've already made my first trip over to The Little Beach Gallery to drop off new Torn Paper Paintings work for the start of the season...and discovered that one of the larger "whale tail" paintings sold.

Hopefully the season is off to a great start and will continue to only get better.
I'm also enjoying my first spring with the new backyard...that is now "minus" the giant swimming pool. Yay!!!
I'm loving the new landscape and have already spent many hours gardening so that over the next few years it will all fill in and mature and look as if it's always been there.
Everything takes time.....it took forever (it seemed) to be rid of the snow. I think I can manage to relax and wait for the plants to grow.

Spring....I guess!!

Considered posting yesterday....but figured everyone might think it was an April Fools joke.
Yes...they tell me it's spring....really??
By the looks of my backyard...you'd never know.
I'm hopeful that this will all change really soon. After all...even the Lowes store is starting to bring in spring plants....poor things!

Oh well....whether it "looks" like spring or not...it's time to start preparing for it.
My first Torn Paper Paintings workshop of the season is only two weeks away.

Also time to get all my latest paintings ready for a run to The Little Beach Gallery to freshen up the wall for the new season. Lots of new pieces will be showing up there....including a new batch of minis.
Also...my fabulous daughter...and brilliant webmaster...has almost fully completed the long overdue process of updating my website for me. I'm certainly at fault for not paying enough attention to it at times. Now...all the pics in the gallery are of "available" works.....all the sold pieces removed, and other pages freshened up!
Always busy with things in the works....but can't spoil all the surprises!!l
Onward....spring is here somewhere....I just know it.
