Vernal Equinox

Weather this time of year is a series of incursions, raiding parties of light, driven back by totalitarian storm clouds. Every day, the rebel weather gains more ground, a degree or two of temperature, a burst of flowers, buds of leaves which will, in a few months, rule the earth.

 Blossoming cherry trees line the sidewalks with tiny pink petals.
I'd love to have some of this forsythia in my studio. So cheerful!
 I took these pictures on a recent walk around my neighborhood in SE Portland, during one of those rare moments of sunshine. Efflorescence abounds, Spring in spite of everything.
Happy Ostara!
