4 x 4 Friday--Imbolc

I've been thinking about Spring, since Wednesday, when it was almost 50 degrees here, and we saw jonquil leaves beginning to break through the warmed soil. Today it't 11 degrees; it snowed a bit last night and the world is winter white and beautiful again.
Ah, Nature...

Here is my take on Imbolc, the Gaelic celebration of the hope of spring in the dead of winter. Printemps by Alphonse Mucha, winter texture from Clive Sax at Textures for Layers, cherry blossoms were googled.
Thanks for visiting.
