The Outline of Spring

Spring weather has already arrived, and the trees are working hard to catch up, but they still stand bare with only buds showing at their tips. The children don't notice though, they are thrilled to be back on the playground and come home happily worn out, with sand pouring from their shoes (and their pockets). We've put away our skis for the season, it's biking time again, and I vow that this year will be the year I carry my camera along on our weekend biking trips. I've other spring resolutions too, they seem to arrive with the season and inspire me to spend a month pouring my free time into learning a new language, jogging every day, eating healthfully. Green is the color of creativity and inspiration, after all.

What language?
All green--always! Am loving this spring here, too.

I was going to say The Outline of Spring resembled a helix but there are others: leaf-springs, for instance. Suspending the back-ends of a million Chevy Impalas.

Since I find myself in an argumentative mood, may I add that green is also the colour of mould (US = mold).

GG - German. Deutsche Welle has online lessons that take you from beginner to early intermediate and they're really fun to work on.

LP - Mold inspires me to scrub ;-).

Yes, please do take your camera along on those bike rides!
