spring begins

140409_Magnolia_2 There is something about spring that steeps my heart in optimism. Somehow, after a record-breaking month of rain, the sunshine seems so special, like the siting of a rare bird. I walked home from Green Lake this morning like a bride along a carpet of petals. Everything is in bloom in a wild chorus of color: magnolias, cherry trees, daffodils, tulips, camellias. As I stopped to photograph this magnolia blossom, spreading it’s petals open to the day,  I wondered how I could keep this spring perfume in my memory. The perfume of optimism.
