That’s the title of this painting by John William Waterhouse, he of Lady of Shalott fame.

Here it is, the middle of March, and it’s 75 degrees outside. Winter is a mere technicality at this point. I think only of the inevitability of Spring with a sense of anticipation that I haven’t felt in years.

I’m not much of a fan of Waterhouse or the Pre-Raphaelite painters in general but the sight of fair damsel gathering wildflowers was just too tempting to pass up.

Here’s to another year in the sun.

Spring Spreads One Green Lap of Flowers (John William Waterhouse, 1910)
