(This seems to be the slowest transition of seasons
that I can ever remember.)
But little by little
the grass is starting to turn
a "teensy" bit greener
with every passing day.
There are buds
on nearly every tree and bush.
The little hyacinths
are starting to peak
through the wet dirt.
And the sun is back!
But to rush it a little indoors,
I bought some supermarket blooms
to spruce things up in the kitchen today.
And I decided to move an antique print
that I my mom recently gave to me
into the kitchen.
Thought it might be fun
to have it near all the brown and white
transferware and ironstone.

The print/etching is a piece called
"Love's Young Dream" - 1887
that was originally
an oil painting by
(Click here to see it in color and up close,
The original hangs in the National Museum
of Women in the Arts in Washington, DC)
This piece hung in our house
for as long as I can remember
and it's fun to look into the scene
and to imagine what the relationships
are in the painting.
I used to think it told the story of a woman,
still living with her older parents,
waiting for possibly many years,
for her one true love to come home --
(maybe from a war?)
--- he can be seen off in the distance
arriving on horseback.
But who knows?!
|Could not get a good shot of the print. So many reflections|
from the glass and the windows across the room!)
it's now in our kitchen
and my kids can sit and ponder
the same question
eat their veggies!
Happy sunny days
to you today
|Have a lovely day!|
