Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.
~Leonardo DaVinci

Signs of spring are popping up especially the return of sunshine continuing into the evenings.  This past weekend, J. and I took advantage of the warmer weather and flew a kite.  I can't wait for more days like that to come.

  3. I wish it would get warmer here! It's still forecast for colder days and even the people at the CTV news station are grumbling about the forecasts. I'm pretty much yearning to wear my spring clothes and not having to worry about layers, mittens and a hat.

  4. That quote reminds me of Japanese art. And now that I think of it, so do your pictures, just in a very Pacific Northwesternified way...:)
