Spring Has Sprung

All the jokes about Seattle aside, our weather is fickle.  Especially this year (although it kind of always seems like I’m saying that), Spring is late.  Three or four times we’ve been tempted with a day of glorious weather, only to plunge into another week of rain.  Yesterday spring was back and it looks like we might get a bit more of it.  I took these pictures a few weeks ago, but the sun makes me want to post them now.

This is my plum tree.  All of those flowers have me pretty excited about the idea of having actual plums too.  We’ll see what happens as I’ve only had it about a year, and it’s in a pot.  Fingers crossed!  One more.

My Pictures, but in Real Life

I really appreciate everyone out there who takes the time to stare at the stuff I post here.  I do this mostly for me, but I don’t think I’d do it if it wasn’t for you.  Thanks a million and all that.

As much as I love this here blog, sometimes seeing things printed out and hung on a wall is a whole different experience.  If you’re interested in doing just that, you can come see some of my prints, in real life, at the 2011 Greenwood / Phinney Art Walk.  The Phinneywood Art Walk (aka “The Big One” to distinguish it from the little monthly art walks) takes place this year on Friday, May 13th from 6-9 PM and Saturday May 14th from 12-5 PM.  The art walk is between 60th and 87th streets, centered on Greenwood and Phinney Ave.  My work will be at Lot 49, which is located on 85th st, just west of Gordito’s.  I’ll be there Friday night and maybe Saturday as well, so stop by and say hi!
