Here at our home, the garden has quickly come alive with spring bulbs blooming and the Redbud and Lilac gracing us with their presence. The fragrance of both the Lilac and the Lily of the Valley immediately transport me to my childhood home and my parents’ garden. The Forget-Me-Nots popping up here and there are both a gift from and reminder of a late friend. That’s the wonderful thing about gardens. They both make memories and bring back old ones especially in Spring when we welcome back old friends such as the perennial plants, birds and the occasional raccoon, skunk or rabbit. Also here at home, the season’s local asparagus and rhubarb are making their way into our meals and treats.





Yesterday a friend and I drove to the beautiful town of Dundas in order to deliver our paintings to the Dundas Museum and Archives. The Central Ontario Art Association’s show, “Perceptions” will take place there until July 17th with the opening taking place on May 21 from 2 to 4.


And to end this newsletter some information about the Westland Gallery’s Plein Air Show.


And finally, a reminder that if you should find yourself in Bayfield, please stop into Main Street Gallery, where, along with some amazing work by Mary Philpott and others, you will find some of my paintings.


As always, thank you for your ongoing interest and support. If you no longer wish to receive these newsletters, please let me know and I will remove your name from my mailing list. Take care and happy Spring!
