When I last posted we were in anticipation of Christmas. Time has passed and we are now almost at Easter. I apologize for neglecting you for two months. Life can sometimes get in the way.

Once again our garden is filled with birdsong, snowdrops, hellebores and lovely things poking out to promise tulips, daffodils and others shortly. After a very long winter with virtually no sunshine and very little snow the blue skies and sunshine over the past few days have been very welcome as are appearances by cottontails and skunks, grackles and crows and even a couple of robins.

My daughter and I spent a delightful morning at one of our favourite garden centres, the first of many sojourns I am sure. We came home with houseplants and potting soil and visions of this summer’s gardens in our heads and hearts.

Even though my studio has remained abandoned since early December, the Summer and Fall were productive and so I have work ready for the Brush and Palette Club Show, The Lambeth Art Association Show and have submitted work for Paint Ontario and the Society of Canadian Artists. Fingers are crossed. I will let you know the results in April’s newsletter.I have also donated a painting to the New Canvas of Life Fundraiser, an annual event supporting London Health Sciences multi-organ transplant program. Ticket are $100 each and are available at . I hope to see you at one of these shows (or more).

Finally I must tell you that I was overwhelmed by the responses to my last newsletter. Your heartfelt messages were read and reread…pure sunshine when I needed it. Thank you.

Take care.
