Slowly, tiptoeing, like a shy maiden, Spring approaches us here in the cold and windy north. Bud coverings litter the ground and tiny leaves peek out along branches. Flies begin to buzz on windowpanes, birds race around building nests and preparing for new births, and we all get the urge to visit the outdoors and take stock of new plant growth and longer days. The white egret returns to stalk still waters, aware of the need for patience and waiting, traits I am in need of improving within myself. Thank you, Egret, for this lesson in serenity, to be found in these warm spring days to come. I watch you through the Cottage Door, and wish you all a wonderful April and May.
FYI: I am in the process of registering adult watercolor classes for this summer. Contact me at email@example.com if you are interested or have questions.
