Spring Greetings and a Ramble…

Such frolicking happening in the garden. Crocuses, daffodils, trilliums, hellebore… all rather enthusiastic! It’s nice to have bits of gentle beauty to notice after a winter that has kept me wonderfully and intensely focused and busy with many orchestral and solo/duo concerts. This included a few weeks on Vancouver Island giving concerts and teaching. You can see some of the ocean beauty on my Listening to the Inbetween photoblog.
And now my Spring will be sporting orchestral, choral and duo concerts as well as a harp festival. Spring wishes and I hope to see you soon, Shar
