Spring, the new beginning! This is a little picture inspired by Sharpened Edge May’s challenge: “Why I love Spring”. The little twist here is that my Spring is not a young beautiful girl. Spring comes every year as long as the planet is revolving around the sun, so why should she be so very young! I think a nice Grandma is more likely.
Three sisters and Grandma again; now girls are big. The eldest is a scientist, the youngest is studying to be a nurse, middle one is enthomologist, and Granny is proud of them all. I’m getting close to the end of this project. And woodpecker is back! We haven’t seen him for a couple of days, but today he has come twice, in the morning and before sunset. “Before sunset” sadly means 3 p.m. now. Anyway it’s good to know he’s OK. He adds a hint of color to the world outside.
The holiday mess is over and here’s the next illustration to Grandma story. Holidays are busy before they start; I need to fill the refrigerator before both our sons come home. Later comes this wonderful time with nothing to cook. It’s not such a bad thing to have full-age children who don’t need any attention, really!
Three sisters and Grandma, illustration no. 4. I really should finish it earlier, but it was so sunny and warm this weekend… summer is back with a short visit. This special October weather is called “babie lato” here, it means: old wife’s summer. I have no idea why. I wonder if it has a special name in other languages, too. Up from Friday we are doing things like gardening, painting windows and riding a bike – everybody’s out all day. My Basia is useless, she’s already wearing her winter coat and now she would rather die then trot.
Back to Jonathan’s story. The girls had two scooters , the Duck and the Bus, and they used to race down the path to the end of Grandma’s garden where they could watch trains passing by. Train watching will be the subject of the next picture.
