Signs of Spring

Mollie and I visited the cabin yesterday.  We took a walk looking for signs of Spring.  Here are just a few of our favorite signs.

Book Making Class

I had a fun time at the book making class with Adele.  I learned how to make accordion folded books, and sewn binding books.

Compare and Contrast

Last weekend, Mollie and I hiked dry creek canyon.  The yellow bells and dog tooth violets were in bloom.  This weekend rain is expected.

Mollie loves hiking.

Spring Flower Class

Yesterday, I taught an art/science class.  It was a low key class, only three students.  We looked at a variety of flowers: tulips, daffodils, catkins, and dandelions.  The students viewed a few of Georgia O'Keeffe's flowers, then created their own masterpieces.  They also made some flower nature/sun prints, and created tissue paper flower sculptures.

Spring again

We have had a number of days of snow and winter like weather.  Today it is finally another day of Spring.  I got out and planted spring flowers to brighten our patio.
