I know spring officially began a week or so ago, but up here in the Pacific Northwest, it ain't really spring 'till the sun comes out and the forecast looks like this:
there are other signs, too:
the Knuckleheads basking in the sun like the matched bookends that they are,
The plum trees are in full bloom,
I weeded the raised vegetable bed and found the biggest carrot I've ever seen
(here's another shot just for scale)
and the most important sign of spring?
Walking around barefoot all afternoon!
Here's wishing everyone a warm and sunny spring, wherever you are!
