cherry snow…

I thought I’d share a photo I snapped the other day. The ornamental cherry trees have been beautiful this year! They always remind me of the poem “Cherry Snow” that my writer/artist grandmother published in New Yorker and Chatelaine magazines when she was a young woman. She was also the first woman in Canada to fly a glider airplane–a feat mentioned in a book called “No Way To Treat A Lady”. This one’s for you, Grammy đŸ™‚

    • Hi Janis…she was a fantastic chick, but a tad eccentric. Unfortunately, she burned everything she wrote or painted! We don’t have the poem and I can’t find it in the magazine archives, which don’t go back nearly far enough.

  1. Gorgeous photo!! Love it! Imagine a woman in those days riding a glider plane!?! That would have taken some chutzpah!

    • DeAnn…you know what a big chicken I am. There’s no chance that I’d climb into a death machine with no engine and then unhook it thousands of feet up in the air!!! Ironic.
