Did you see the moon last night?!!! HUGE - and it's supposed to be even larger tonight! We're paused at the last day of winter (according to the seasonal calendar) and with the temps this weekend, it feels like spring for sure!

The flowering trees on my property though are still holding back a bit - my saucer magnolia is still is bud and my flowering quince is JUST beginning to open. And my daffodils are barely out of the ground! In downtown Oxford, though, probably warmer just a bit than my rural home, these same plants are wide open - gracing the landscape with delicate pinks and peaches.

Today, a bit of gardening, a bit of painting, and a bit of chores ...should be a nice quiet weekend ...

Hope your is too!

  1. We are so unusually overcast I can't see the moon! I sure hope this passes by today as it's the third day. Being desert we are usually clear. I was hoping to try to capture it similarly to your picture but it might not be visible. This is very nice and maybe the most I will see of it.

  2. WOW!! Gorgeous painting. I'm looking forward to it tonight, it wasn't so big where I'm at, southern california. ( maybe I went to bed too early??)
