My Blooming January Days

Monday, January 11, 2010
I've lived in California over 25 years and still cannot believe the warm days and blooms we have in January!

While the rest of the country is besieged by snow and ice, I am grateful to walk among poppies under 70 degree clear skies.

Just makes a girl want to swish bright colors onto canvas . . .

and paper for notebooks too.

My palette is in bloom!

Don't be steamed . . . they say a bit of rain may be in the forecast for Wednesday. (I must admit, our weather dudes are never right. The good ones must work where there's actual weather!)

Thanks for bringing some beautiful color into my all snowy white life.
