No matter where you are, springtime always makes your environs positively intoxicating.
Are you sick of flowers yet? Too bad. Everywhere you look, a painterly landscape.
The parks here are gorgeously manicured and planted. There's just so much in bloom, everywhere. It's really energizing to be out, even if the skies are less than sunny.
I love the robins here. They are tiny birds compared to the American robin, and they sing loudly and quite cheerfully, with little flashes of orange as they hop from one branch to the next.
