Spring Is Springing

It’s been a strange March.  Warm temperatures and periods of rain.  It’s been in the 70’s for most of March.  The upside is that spring flowers are out in force and strawberries should be ready a couple of weeks early.  The downside is that pine pollen is everywhere and heavy.

And one of my favorite parts is the stream that goes through the parking lot area at work.  We have a wooden bridge which goes over it and most of the year it is dry, especially in the past few years with the lack of rainwater.  Now it is beautiful.
