Here it was, this beautiful day. First, leaving the "neighborhood" to drive to Traverse City for my early morning class, there was a lovely dawn. Here it is behind the cemetery at St. Wenceslaus church.
Then along Grand Traverse Bay, at sunrise, a blackbird was singing--or so it fondly imagined.
After class, on my way back north to Northport, in the town of Suttons Bay, at the wonderful little jewel of a flower shop called Forget-Me-Not Florists, I was delighted to find paintings by Northport's own Joanne Sahs.
The water was gorgeous in the sunshine! Farther up the road, the blues of Omena Bay were striking in the sunlight.
And finally, back under the old silver maple in our backyard, the first daffodil was shyly begining to open after a day of bright sunshine.
