Dare I Hope??? ... SPRING Is Here?

Wishful thinking? I thought I'd try hanging some laundry outside.

His Imperial Highness, hoping for a bit of a snack [which he got]. I have actually been able to start riding again!!!!! And we are doing not badly at all! 

Poor lighting here. I think I am about done with this - almost finished, and I am definitely bored with it. Time for some horse paintings, and some vignettes of forest scenes.

Neighbor up the road, harrowing her ring with her jeep, getting it ready for riding.

Maggie managed to sit quietly for about 1/2 a second.

Possible painting?

Maggins, flying through the woods.

I have no idea what this is, but it had such a lovely, delicate bloom.


Had to laugh at this tiny bird hanging upside down from the branch.

Surprisingly, the wild violets came up this year, despite Maggie's best efforts at digging them out!

Very happy today. The weather is improving, and I can start regular play-time with Bruno. And I finally took the "quality assessment"test that the B.C. dental hygiene college has decided is mandatory for licensure. I have been procrastinating for months. I couldn't be bothered to study, feeling the test to be somewhat of a waste of time [I have always been a rebel], and if I didn't know my stuff after all these years in the field ... Anyway, I passed with flying colors.

That's all for now. Thank you so much for dropping by!
