Woman in Art

This is great fun to watch. One woman. All women.

Spring Greening

I submit this bush, that got in the way of my photo of the soccer game, as proof that spring is making an appearance, although belated and still chilly and wet.

This reminds me of a scene in the movie "Semi Tough" (Burt Reynolds, Kris Kristofferson and Jill Clayburgh) in which the character played by Jill returns from an African safari and shows her portfolio of travel photographs to the character played by Kris.
Nice photos of trees, he remarks.
I was trying to take pictures of the giraffes, she replies, and points to a giraffe partially visible behind the tree.
To which he responds that she only thought she was trying to take a photo of the giraffes, but her real intent was to photograph the trees, because that is what she did.

So, I guess I subconsciously wanted to take a photo of the bush,
because I did.

April Blows Snow

I'm posting this video so you can see the snow we had on this first Monday of what is euphemistically called Spring Break. It looks more like Winter Break than Winter Break did. The dogs, however, made the most of it, enjoying a romp in the snow.

April Showers are Supposed to be Rain

When I joked about the snow on the daffodils, I truly thought it was almost over, that Spring was just around the corner, but that corner is turning out to be much further away than expected. Here it is Spring Break, and I had hoped to be sitting out in my yard and doing gardening and other yard work, tree and bush trimming, but that just so isn't happening. I realize the week isn't over and Spring weather can change quickly, but this is starting to feel ridiculous. No cute poems or limericks this time, just a fervent wish for the snow to end and the sun to shine!
