hyacinths are early spring blooms, and the guess is that spring will come early this year, much as autumn lasted very late last year.

these flowers are from a florist who makes weekly flower deliveries to the house. (women especially are surprised to hear i have flowers delivered to my wife every week.) but jan also grows hyacinths in her garden, and those blooms will be in our home in a month or two.

jan bought the vase at the murano glassworks during our trip to venice last year.

i painted this early in the morning; i'd brought the paint kit and brushes up from the studio intending to work on it last night, but fell asleep before i got to it.
