Happy birthday to John La Farge (1835–1910), one of the earliest American artists to draw inspiration from the natural motifs and asymmetrical compositions of Japanese art. This impressive stained-glass window marries Eastern aesthetic sensibilities with a Western allegorical subject.

Spring,” 1901–2, designed by John La Farge, assembled by Thomas Wright, and painted by Juliette Hanson

Sherlock doesn’t sing in the shower, he hums. 

Classical tunes most of the time, or one of his own compositions. John heard him once when Sherlock thought he was out - Sarah called and told him to stay home because it was too quiet - and he stayed in the kitchen just to listen that deep baritone soothe him the same way the violin managed to do.

Sherlock shocked face when he came out of the shower and saw his flatmate, was one John would treasure for weeks to come.
