Spring is here

I live in the heart of the city, but the country is just over the bridge. On my way to getting my computer fixed, I passed by nurseries and farms all enjoying a beautiful spring day here in Maine.

Spring is very early this year and everything is blooming like crazy. It is glorious. Beautiful flowering trees including Magnolias are bursting out all over the city.

Forsythia is always the first sign of spring and it is such a vibrant splash of yellow after a long gray winter.

While I enjoy all your paintings, the painting of the pigs is a particular favorite. So much personality!
