Super day in the city

Wow.  Went for a walk in the park today and the colours
were incredible.  High, pure sky blue, soft bright green
buds of leaves on the trees, and people most definitely
high on life.  Couples walking holding hands of all
ages and descriptions.  Love was in the air.

The sweetest thing I saw was a young couple who'd climbed
up into a tree and were perched up on a big horizontal branch
smiling down on the world, and proclaiming it a magnificent day.

So here's another pansy painting to honour spring in
her magnificence.  The radio announcer says the main
thing you smell in Toronto now is cigarettes.  Not here, it was
barbecues -- everyone's dinner wafting across the backyards.  And
the main sound aside from birds, was the excited laughter
and happy screams of children playing tag.

Have a beautiful day today.
