Redbuds and Scott Avett

Redbud trees are blooming. I know I probably say this every year, but they were a favorite of my mother. To her, they were a signal that spring was, indeed, here.

Look at the flowers closely. Often we just see a splash of pink along the roadside or at the edge of the yard, but never take time to notice the intricate details of the things that we appreciate.

There will be a workday at the Jonesboro Community Garden on Saturday, March 21 beginning at 9:00 am. We will be planting some new things, trimming some old things, and just getting the garden ready for Spring. come and join us. Look for an announcement soon of an Earth Day event at the Garden (maybe).

I keep hearing this song by the Avett Brothers, so I guess its time to post the video.

Singer Scott Avett is also an artist. Here's a link to his work. Scott was born in Wyoming but raised in the Piedmont of North Carolina.

Scott has been described as an "Artist Hobo, for his methods of collecting subject matter, inspiration, and time to work, expresses his ideas through multiple artistic mediums. These mediums include illustration, printmaking, painting, sculpture, songwriting, recording, and performing."

"Conceptually, Avett’s work involves self critical analysis and awareness of one’s mental strengths and weaknesses such as phobia’s and talents, fears and courage."

Speaking of art, I just got permission to use an author's photos of petroglyphs from Nevada in a project I am working on with UAB. This is gonna be fun.

Nice to see the redbuds. Up in Minnesota today, its 65F and sunny but only the pussy willows are starting to bloom so far
