The Cusp of Spring

Ah, it's the last day of February! Spring is just around the corner. In fact, it feels like it's already here, at least where I live. We've had thunderstorms, warm south winds, and twice I've had the chance to sunbathe. Yep, in February. Which means March will likely be cloudy and cold. Time seems to get confused on occasion. Or maybe the issue is humanity trying to create order by naming a set of days and then expecting those days to behave a certain way. And then we're scandalized when things happen differently than we say they should. That's Philosophy In Your Corner by Court Ellyn.

In honor of the cusp of spring, here are two timely masterpieces for your enjoyment:

An Orchard In Spring
Claude Monet, 1886

Springtime at Giverny
Claude Monet, 1880

Gorgeous paintings!

It's supposed to be 77 in Atlanta today with thunderstorms. It does feel like spring. All in all, I think it's a good thing the weather continually indulges in the unexpected. It's a great ice breaker. (I really didn't mean that as a pun!)
