The Spring of 2017 was/is a long-time coming.
This is our morning view:
The only ground showing was under the Blue Spruce.
During March and April the snow did melt but then we got five inches of ice pellet packed snow last week that we could drive half ton trucks over without a tread-mark. The stuff this morning was just a wet snow cover that concentrated the birds so that the Sharp-shinned hawk of the previous post came calling.
To pass the time while the snow was melting I finally MADE TIME for myself to create some art-works.
Media was Modeling Clay on 16x20 canvass boards.
