First Day of Spring?

We woke up to this yesterday morning, the first day of spring.  

Doesn't Mother Nature know that we've got work to do in the garden?

Even in Winter...

I'm always sketching ideas for troughs, although I might cast only one out of 50 or more that I draw.
I might give this one above a go this spring.  I keep coming back to this drawing in my sketchbook from a couple years ago.

I'd like to do some stools or pedestals this year too. 

Alvar Aalto's glass vases are a constant inspiration.

Friday AM: It's the first week of March!  Maybe we need to take down the paper snowflakes to get it to stop snowing?

Sunday PM: The sun felt warm and the roads were clear so I took my mountain bike out for a pothole tour of the surrounding suburbs.  After riding the trainer for two months, it felt great to be out.

I can't remember ever biking while kids were sledding in South Orange.
