First Day of Spring!

George Inness (1825-1894) Spring Blossoms, Montclair, New Jersey. Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1891
Happy Vernal Equinox to you! It was a beautiful day, so warm and sunny that I actually peeled off a layer at some point...a first for this season! In fact it's been so mild here on the East Coast of the US that the spring blossoming trees seem to be  blooming all at once...no slow succession of almond to crabapple magnolia to cherry etc. Just a mad froth of color and petals...like a very big and frou-frou wedding party!
