Here in the north, Springtime's a tease. One day I'm tilling the soft warm soil. The next day it's frozen solid. The shovel lays beside the garden until the earth softens up again. In the meantime, I "virtual garden" on one of my absolute favorite sites: L'atelier Vert

Those blue and white Parisian street signs evoke much delight. To the Francophile, moi!, these utilitarian signposts symbolize such bons souvenirs de France. I'm not the only one. They have a cult following, it appears. A bit of online research yields a dizzying amount of trade surrounding the ubiquitous bleu et blanc. Companies like Emaillerie Normande will customize them with any message you want. Or you could choose from their own selection: LAPIN LUNATIQUE or HAMSTER MALICIEUX or ENFANT TERRIBLE. Drôle.

This little sketch really gets to the heart of me. I've always loved deer and the romance of the deep woods. As a child, I pored over the magnificent illustrations of Adrienne Ségur. She often depicted magical forests.
I now live in one. It is a true gift when deer quietly step into our yard. They are so lovely.
