Hello, Spring!

On this day in 1888 Vincent Van Gogh painted Grass and Butterflies because  SOMETIMES in SOME PLACES,  April is Spring.

This little 17th century Spring time scene sums up how I feel about snow in April – STUPID SPRING. Seriously, if you have a Stag by the back legs – LET GO. Holding on is stupid. VERY VERY INDEED

This is the Spring I’m waiting for…..

This is what it was like as I was looking out my window this morning, and will probably see more of tomorrow.My friend Mindy lives up and over the street from me, and she got it on film…

Don’t need to wait til tomorrow – it’s just started again…..
