Confusing weather

While I chug away at deadlines I thought I would share with you a scene from the Georgetown canal where Forsythia seems to be confused by our unseasonably warm weather.  Hopeful signs of spring!

My black doors

 This weekend I crossed something off my bucket list; I painted my interior doors black!
While I was at it I removed all of the brass and glass hardware and took off  90 years worth of grime, stray paint, and tarnish. While I like the brass to have patina it wasn't in the best shape. Besides, brass ages quickly so I anticipate it to be shiny for only about a month.
Previously the doors were painted the same white as the trim.  I love the new contrast between the black doors and crisp door casing (attained by using blue painters tape as you can see above -what did we do before this stuff?).  What do you think; approve?
