In the spring, I have counted 136 different kinds of weather inside of 24 hours.*

Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens)

As spring approaches summer, its temperatures and weather in general still continue to fluctuate.  British artist Daniel Alexander Williamson (1823-1903), in his scenic view near a Lancashire village in England, captures the changing landscape of springtime.  The humor and wit of acclaimed American writer Mark Twain (1835-1910)  endures more than a century after his death.
