Spring is almost here.  Many of you could be traveling this week to warmer climates, good decision after this stormy cold winter!  Whether you are traveling someplace warm or just home to relax when you return to campus we will be one week closer to spring.  The clocks have been set forward and the temperatures is beginning to rise!

While you are waiting for the trees, shrubs and flowers to bloom you can take a look at the e-book Flowers.  You will find paintings of flowers by Monet, Picasso, Renoir, Van Gogh and many more.  Enjoy!
