Pink in the city

Today has been a day of dramatic storms, incredible fog,lush green, and a city flowering in every colour of pink.
The trees are now in full leaf -- setting off the flowering
trees that are delighting the eye in every direction.
Today we saw a lady struggling to carry two huge bags of
soil home from the supermarket, and offered her a ride.
She would have had to walk a few more blocks, and we
were glad to help. When we dropped her off, and Steven carried
one of the bags up to her porch for her, I noticed a gorgeous
crab apple tree flowering to one side of her front steps.
And so tonight I think it's right to show this painting --
a personal favourite of mine, for the gorgeous time of
year it captures. I stopped my car on the way home from
a meeting the other day to take more photographs of
the street in the painting. It is all happening right now.
A man sat with his dog on his front steps watching me,
probably wondering what that lady was doing taking
photos. I was thinking forward. Maybe soon I'll do
another painting of one of the marvels of spring.
Have a magnificent weekend, and sing about spring.
