    Assignment: spring.

    Your mission should you choose to accept it is to capture the arrival of spring. Get out there this weekend and use that macro lens or that landscape mode to display the essence of spring.

    Don't forget the antihistamine and stay away from the oak.

    I'll be at CCCX on Saturday, so I'll make sure to bust out my macro while out there & get some good photos

    Now that my PO is almost gone, I plan on starting my commute to work again by bike. I love spring!

    That's brilliant and enlightening.

    And bonus is oak doesn't move up all the way in elevation right?

    Dang it, got the oak itch two times so far this year. I can't seem to avoid it. Last year I had zero run-ins with the beast, looks bad for me this year.
    Too many bikes, and just enough time to ride them.

    Yes. Those and the poppies are exploding around SLO town as well. This is going to be a great wild flower year, I hope. Here is a link to the wildflower progress report.

    Another perspective. Spring is about life. I got up to the tree in full bloom to take a photo and the buzzing sound was pronounced. The tree had a ton of bees checking out the bounty.

    Spring is about group rides. Goodbye cold, solo rides.

    Spring is about beer. I am not sure why but I switched to coffee during the cold months. I'm back.
