Leaf Out Day

Today is officially *Leaf Out Day* here in northern Michigan. Every year for the past 20 years I have celebrated these first brave leaves. Now I have to say they they are the poplar leaves...sort of a wimpy grayish green. Very delicate and apparently waiting for chirorphyl to make its self known. But Leaves they are and abundantly displayed..fluttering in the wind like little handkerchiefs.

I had a wonderful time in both PA and Chicago. My gallery talk went well, and I survived the two segment taping for Quilting Arts TV. Now I am home and cleaning the studio and working like mad.
