The world in bloom

Forgive me for being sentimental but my cherry tree is in full
bloom now, and the apple tree seems to be wanting to make
pink flowers, so the trees in my yard are at their all time best.
I've been working pretty hard, but it's so gratifying to poke my
head out into what was a desolate landscape all winter to see this.

I'm working on a little painting, so I thought I'd show you some of my
yard paintings. I think I have two that will give you an idea of the
contrast in seasons.

It looks like I better get to work on a spring painting before it's all gone.

Have a loving-the-season-you're-with day.

The contrast in the seasons, or in you?! Both beautiful ... I love the blues of the winter scene (now that winter's comfortable behind me).
My cherry tree is done blooming; now the birdbath is full of little pink petals!

Hi Laura,

You're right my painting style changes quite a bit from painting to painting, and it has changed quite a bit in the past year.

It always looks like a wedding when the petals fall.

Take care,
