Weekly Note

The celebration of Mardi Gras this week in New Orleans reminds us that spring is just around the corner. Before you know it, the crocuses and daffodils will peek up and shine their bright faces towards the warm sun.

While we wait for these welcome signs of the coming season, enjoy this week's curated Frank Lloyd Wright-related news and all the interesting things that await.

As always, Stay Calm and Wright On!
