Spring!


 Last week we finally had a spring day and everyone, people and animals alike, were enjoying the outdoors.  I went to check out an outdoor painting site.  The trees were not blooming enough for me to paint there, but I was able to get some great photos of the pond wildlife enjoying the gorgeous weather.





 All of the turtles seemed to be doing a mating dance.












This guy was enjoying the sun and didn't care that a few of us were there taking photos of him.  If you look at the top photo, you can see he was actually posing for us.  



This is the pond.  It's not exactly Monet's water garden, but considering it's in the middle of New York City, it's good enough.  I'm told that if we manage to have some warm and sunny days the water lilies  will multiply.  Can't wait for that!

The seven days after I took these photos we had horrible weather.   However,  yesterday spring seemed to make a return.  Here's hoping the good weather stays and we can get out and paint en plein air!
