This is as close as I'm getting to an umbrella these days. In my part of the world, we still need long underwear and mittens. Winter is refusing to relinquish it's grip on us. It came in November and by now has long outstayed it's welcome. I'm regretting not having booked a tropical vacation this year, no matter what the economy! Instead I'm dreaming of margaritas on the patio while gazing at snowbanks.
These funky plastic cocktail glasses really did have margaritas in them in anticipation of the first trip to Mexico, with the fancy matching straws and speckled umbrellas. The other colors were turquoise and lime green - very fun and festive.

I'm off to stay with my mom for the next 4 days, where I hope to do lots of sketching (and relaxing). Here's hoping spring has sprung in your part of the world.
