April Fools!

I think it's Mother Nature who is playing an April Fools trick on us this year with this chilly weather. This beautiful etching of a fool was made by Hans Hanberg in 1568. He is resting his chin on his right hand, wearing a chain with a large medallion, with a fly on his fool's cap. I'm pretty sure he is looking for signs of spring! 

Click here to see a collection of fools 
and jesters that I have gathered.

Foolery, sir, does walk about the orb 
like the sun, it shines everywhere.

~ William Shakespeare, Twelfth Night
