Édouard Bisson's "A young beauty with a wreath of roses" is a pretty spring painting. The girl's fair, soft, curvy body and her cascading brunette hair are lovely, as is the string of flowers she's wearing. The dress sensually wrapped around her and the stone edifice she's resting her supple arm on complete this beautiful vision of classical femininity.

"Ready for the Carnival" by Émile Vernon is a lovely painting bursting with spring flowers and feminine beauty; four gorgeous girls draped in blossoms and sheer dresses is always a very pleasant sight.

Jules-Joseph Lefebvre's "Springtime" is a lovely painting for this season. The girl's fair face, soft arms, and full figure are all gorgeous, the flowers draped over her head highlighting the beauty of that tumbling brunette hair.

Émile Vernon's painting "The Flower Garden" practically bursts with spring colors. The red-haired girl with the gorgeous blue eyes and the flower-filled scene complement each other beautifully.

Faster transportation for the masses would have revolutionary implications for our way of life. Flying cars are only the beginning of our future.
