The pure weather continues. Mornings cold and white with frost – Haze in the air; sparkling grass –

Noon in Park – Redbird burning against the sky singing -

Flickers — Kingfishers — Heat waves wriggling over edge of rich warm grünplatz — Warm hillsides — mourning cloaks dancing — white cabbage butterfly — Cottonwood catkins growing longer & wave filmy in the wind — chippy-sparrow — white buckeye buds in the night arclight —

Charles E. Burchfield, April 15, 1915
