The sun is shining around Cape Cod today, with temperatures in the 20s and 30s and nights into the teens. We've had several wintery storms since January 1 and the snow is just about gone. Yesterday I saw daffodils beginning to stretch their arms above the ground, 3- 4 inches high.
Speaking of stretching... sales of my historical novel The Old Cape House are spreading across the Cape and the country according to Amazon.com, Barnes&Noble, and many wonderful bookstores.
I found some beautiful images of paintings by Dutch realist Jozef Israels that remind me of my 1715 heroine Maria Hallett and how she waited for her lover Sam Bellamy to return to her.
This coming Tuesday, March 4 at 7pm, I will be speaking and giving a presentation about my novel at The Brewster Ladies Library. Hope you can join me.
The weather has been strange this year. The day after I took the picture (shown above) of the daffodils coming out...the snow came once again. It looked like someone shook powder sugar across Cape Cod. It was beautiful!
As I also prepare to speak at the Jacob Sears Library in Dennis on Monday – March 10 at 7pm, I hope there will be more sunshine and maybe I'll get to enjoy this image of my gardens.
