Claude Monet on a Winter’s Day

We are only beginning January and have not really experienced brutal winter yet here in the Midwest.  But already my thoughts are returning to starting seeds, planting gardens and the flowers of spring.   Here is a lovely, warming Monet for a chilly winter’s day.

“Just living is not enough . . . . one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.” ~ Hans Christian Andersen
