Day 3013: Signs of Spring

Do you see signs of spring in these images that are springing out of my iPhone onto your screen?

Poets are a sign of spring, because April is National Poetry Month in the USA.

From now on, the amazing 1967 French musical The Young Girls of Rochefort (Les Demoiselles de Rochefort) starring George Chakiris, Catherine Deneuve, her sister Françoise Dorléac, and GENE KELLY, directed by Jacques Demy, with music by Michel Legrand, is going to be a sign of spring for me, because I first discovered it in the spring of 2021.

Here’s the opening of The Young Girls of Rochefort:

Gene Kelly always has a spring in his step, here and everywhere else:

If you make a comment, below, that will be another wonderful sign of spring for me.

I am always grateful for signs of spring and for all who help me create these daily posts, including YOU.

You reading this, be ready for this music by Curtis Mayfield:

Thanks to all who helped me ready this post for reading and to you — of course! — for being ready to read it.
