May Day

So regardless of where you live, Spring is probably the nicest season, and the Puget Sound region is no different than the rest and better than most. It has taken a little longer than normal for spring to have sprunge, but the trees are now budding with a fresh, vibrant green that stands out against the darker evergreens that have been standing guard through the winter. The rhodeys are in bloom in the lowlands in a cascade of reds, pinks, whites and yellows against this background. And we have soft rain in the evenings and scattered cloudscapes during the days and the occasional rainbow.

And I've seen otters in the canal behind the building and a bald eagle on the campus. The geese are just starting to come back, and there are no chicks yet, but it is very, very nice.

More later,
