Lots of friends are asking when I’m going to paint again and all I can ask back is when is it going to stop raining outside? Some guy on TV said we had the rainiest February on record and that’s now oozing into March, too. Twenty-four straight days of rain this round and three times more rain than usual for this winter? That’s just whack!

If you recall last year at this time, I was already dabbing and tapping away painting spring flowers. Or maybe that was in April, maybe even May. I’m sure I was THINKING about painting either way, just like I am now.

(Mom edit: Quint’s first walk in the garden was April 25, 2016 and his second walk followed by painting was April 29, 2017.)

Mom says not to worry, that spring is coming a week from today. Do I think a week from today will be the perfect first spring day? Do you think I might get to go out for my first walk in my garden? Do I think all the flowers outside will be happy to see me? I’m sure going to be happy to see them!

Dad says it will still probably be too chilly for me to go outside and Mom assures me none of the flowers are ready to open yet. She says we have to wait just a wee bit longer.

So, I guess I’ll just lounge here and chill a bit more. Don’t worry. These big painting paws will be dabbing color again soon!
