Spring has sprung!!

Every where I turn there is color to behold!  A trip through the Farmer's Market this morning was like walking through a rainbow of flowers.

Back at home we are enjoying the blooms of the pear tree, nectarine tree, and the lilacs! It makes dinner on the patio a feast on every level! What could be better than spring color, dinner al fresca, and a little wine to slow the senses and take it all in??

The Gallery Show

April's First Friday in Chestertown was a wonderful warm spring evening.   It seemed like the whole town was out to enjoy the festivities of 'downtown' Chestertown.   Cathy and I were thrilled -- so many people came to view our gallery show at PNC Bank!  Everyone loved her pastels, and my screens were a hit as well!  As is usually the case, about half of everyone was familiar with the history of Baltimore Painted Screens - from either living in Baltimore, or visiting grandparents, relatives or friends there from 'back in the day' when these screens were so popular.  The other half were amazed to realize that the paintings were actually on a real window screen!  The bank provided wonderful refreshments , and we had a chance to visit with our friends and neighbors who stopped by -- thank you all!!

What A View

We took our first boat ride of the season today -- the view was super.   The water was cold, and the air crisp -- but the sun was wonderful.   We watched Osprey working on their nests.  Max had a chance to chase sticks in the water, and John and I toasted each other and the beginning of spring.   Life is good ....
