Spring Blossom

What did I do?

Came the spring with all it's splendor,
All it's birds and all it's blossoms,
All it's flowers and leaves and grasses...
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow~

Every one who knows me well, I mean knows me really well, knows I love poetry. They have known me to swoon over a well constructed sentence, a clever turn of a phrase, a metaphor that shines like the sun. They have known me to speak in rhyme for no reason and answer an email in prose. They say, it may be my affliction....like a weakness for musicians, or having to smell every rose I pass.
It is my firm belief that spring is the Earth's way of writing poetry. With every crocus, tulip and daffodil that pokes up from the wet earth, she says, "Look! Behold what beauty! Do you see?" With every cherry blossom that unfurls it's pink petals she whispers,
" Blossom. Go ahead. You can."
Every one who knows me well, I mean knows me really well knows I love spring. They say, it may be my affliction.....like a love for flowers and honey off the spoon.
Happy Spring! Blossom.Go ahead. You can.

Proud to Be a Canadian!


I'm proud to be a Canadian. I think I live in one of the best countries in the world. I like that we are humble and polite and can poke fun at ourselves. There are times though, when I feel we should stand up and show the world who we really are instead of hiding behind false stereotypes. We are an intelligent, creative nation, and for today I will let the red and white fly because I am proud to be a Canadian!

Sing Spring!

Love Notes

I am sooo ready for spring. Need sunshine like a flower needs the rain and well, we've been having lots of rain... Good news though the sun is shining today, there are buds on the magnolia trees and the studio is full of tulips and daffodils. Woot!
Here is a delightful palette to groove your way into spring. Sing it loud!
