Bellevue and the Flowering Fall of Spring

It's the end of the first Fall in Bellevue. Did you know Spring has a Fall? It's the time when all the little trees drop their flowers, coating the street curbs with piles of soft pink petals. It's really quite lovely, and carries a tinge of sadness...we will have to wait until next year to watch these notes of pink breezing about.

The major compensation is the onset of better weather. It's still not reliably sunny, but the days are longer and mostly clearer. The air feels softer, lacking the bite we've become used to all winter long.

All the trees have fully entered Springtime, at least. There is no mistaking the light green tufts, thicker by the day. Annuals grow thickly in Downtown medians and planters, and the perennials are sending up preliminary shafts and buds.

Winter is over, Amen.

EMG! Hi girl! It's so good to hear from you. I was actually just talking about you at the Bella Conference, about how you were my star forum member, who galvanized the whole forum into becoming such a nice, interactive place.

I'll take a look at your blog too. I have a question for you, BTW. I'll ask you there.

Thanks for finding me here!
