We are finally having beautiful weather here.  It comes in spasms, but there are more gorgeous days than wet and cold.  Over the weekend friends and I wrangled assorted kids,went on a picnic,and decided to teach the kids to fly kites. I sent someone into a store to buy them for the crowd and this is the one they chose for me.  I hung it in the studio both for inspiration and as a memento of a wonderful day with friends who love me.  It may not stay there long, however, as everyone had a blast and I am sure we will be doing it again.
