Back to 'Nureyev's World'.

Thanks to the audacity of Nureyev, the brilliance of Toulouse-Lautrec, and to Paris, always.

Nureyev made one of the most amazing leaps of his lifetime in Paris. For those wondering about the spelling in this title, Nureyev chose, most of his time in the West, to use the French spelling of his name: Noureev. It works beautifully in this piece.

Also, Thank You to Julie at BeingRuby for reminding me of this painting!

Springtime, this year, has been unpredictable, at best. Spring. WINTER. Maybe Spring? No, Winter, still. Ah! Finally Spring!

A couple of weeks ago, I was fascinated watching a very brave hyacinth decide it had waited long enough. It sent up lovely green leaves in record time. It's stem strengthening to hold the flower buds. Then, it started to bloom. It was very brave. But winter's last stand was just too much for this valiant hyacinth.
