Spring 2020

We're about half-way through the year, and today we'll bake with a temperature near 90 F. Lest I forget how pleasant it was this past spring I reviewed some images of the season. The plants did their part to entertain me even though the rest of the world doled out sickness, sadness and an alarming degree of insanity. But let's appreciate some of the pleasant memories, to help balance out the worries with the floral joy of life.
