Everywhere you look there are trees blooming in every color imaginable. The Wisteria vine, Red Bud trees and Mimosa are my absolute favorites. However, I could do without the pollen that covers everything (inside and out) with a heavy yellow dust.
Marty the squirrel has made a few appearances on the fire escape but not too many. I suspect that he's waiting for me to plant my flower boxes. He seems to have a taste for tender green flower shoots.
Lately I have been painting floral images for Mother's Day and spring products. It's nice to be painting in the season for a change. All I have to do is go outside for inspiration. I've posted a few of the images.
Tomorrow I head to High Point, NC for the furniture show. I will be working with my friends at Oly so come by and say hello if you're attending the show.
