Went for a walk on the first day of spring.
In a way, it was poetic - for the first time this year, it really felt like spring. A light warm breeze, lots of flowers popping up, honeybees making their rounds among them, and the sky an uncharacteristic deep shade of blue with wispy very white clouds, unusual in this part of Oregon.
Came upon a plum tree, in blossom, and spent some time under it, breathing in the soft aroma of the blooms. Watched falling petals floating gently towards the ground. Took a few photos.
None of these pictures is meant to be artistic, it's just a record of a mood impression, a glimpse into a fleeting moment in time.
