When the weekend rolls around, there is nothing like grabbing the camera to get out and about in warmer weather taking pictures of spring, as the season unfolds away from winter.

{Basil, dill, rosemary, thyme, cilantro and mint basking in the sunlight}

Hardening off herbs on the porch to acclimate the plants to stronger sunlight, cooler nights and less frequent watering from when they were seeds.

{Eclairs, cheesecakes, fruit tarts and the sweet du jour- lemon cream cake from French restaurant la Madeleine}

Selecting a treat from the pastry display at la Madeleine after a delicious lunch with my dearest friend Marly. It’s always a pleasure to relax, enjoy a light meal while talking over a fragrant cup of French roasted coffee.

Apollo Victorious over a Python sculpted in 1591 by Pietro Francavilla in Florence {Walters Art Gallery, Baltimore, MD}

This gorgeous sculpture is of late Renaissance style known as Mannerism, and is a representation of the ancient sun god Apollo’s triumph when he slew the serpent Python with his bow and arrow at Delphi.

Spring forward stylishly,

  1. Hello Stylish Heath……..Spring has FINALLY arrived. Proof is from you Daffodils. If I remember correctly from last year, you have a Cherry tree that should be blossoming. Gotta take pics again this year for your blog. Love the fresh fruit tart in the pic from La Madeleine. Simply irresistible!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Go Apollo. He needs no mention. Just look at that stance……………………………………………………………………….nice stylish post.


    1. I am pleased you remember the cherry tree post {April 2013} from last spring. Hopefully, in the next day or two the cherry tree should be in full bloom. Stay posted for updates!!!


  2. Impressive pictures of spring goodies especially the pastries. Still waiting for blooms in Chicago but we’re getting close. Spring is the best time of year to take long lakefront walks and I indulged myself today with a three mile trek. Just getting started with many more forays to follow. Looking forward to visiting Heath for Memorial day.


    1. It is wonderful to get out in the warmer weather to the museums to see these fabulous pieces of art. Stay tuned for more to come!!
