This is no idle time in the Pacific Northwest. Flowers are blooming. Hummingbirds are zooming. And the people follow suit. There are woods and beaches to explore in the warming air, dirt to dig in, seeds to be planted, weeds to be pulled, birthdays to be celebrated, parades to march in, festivals to attend, and friends to gather with. Winter's rest is behind us. The days are getting longer and we race to fill them with all of the wonderful offerings of life. Somehow we still manage to eat. And once or twice, I've just insisted that we sit on a blanket and read. Every now and again, I collapse in a sunny patch of grass to catch my breath. My time is spent doing, more than writing. Luckily, I've managed to take a few pictures of the fun times of our full days.
What are you up to this spring?
Note: Thanks to Tracy for the picture of Pearl at May Faire. And thanks to Ali for the picture of me with Juniper. It would not upload upright, but sideways fits my mood these days anyway.
