After a very cold and snowy winter, I think I can honestly saw that spring has officially arrived to Ohio. The birds are out and about singing their spring time songs, the spring peepers can be heard every night and the leaves on the trees have started to pop out.
This year my daffodils have bloomed earlier than they have ever bloomed before, because the of the small hillside they are one they usually don’t bloom until May
My husband texted me this morning to look out the window, what I saw was the sun hitting the hillside behind the farm across the street. He was talking about this gorgeous double rainbow that is pictures here.
This morning the kids and I took a walk in the woods before we started our day.
The chestnut trees are starting to drop chestnuts.

Yesterday as I was walking back to my car after spending a few hours working in my studio, I came upon a few wild strawberries and flowers along the building.
Black Raspberries grow wild in abundance in Ohio and I make use of that fact by picking as many berries as I can so I can freeze them to eat over the winter.
I even found a few friends along the way.
The family dog Honey was my ever faithful companion today, she looks as hot as I felt.
By the time I was done picking berries, I had 2 quarts of berries to put away that is if my kids don’t get to them first.
My husband decided to burn the grass on the hillside near our house, why he decided to do that I’m not sure. I am just waiting for the Fire Department to arrive in our driveway.
While thinking over this challenge and what to do about it has had me stumped all week. So when I saw the smoke I knew this was the inspiration I needed. After a bit of manipulation to this photograph, this is my spin on Abstract Art.
