wild fennel and dandelion seeds

I don't know why, but I am taking delight in little bits of nature right now. Maybe it's spring fever. If the rain drives you inside this weekend, spend some time here (where you can see the above photograph).

I'll be back tomorrow with a few more links and a round up of photo inspiration week. Until then, be well. Oh, and cherry blossom fever is spreading in Washington ~ here's the bloom prediction.

Oh, the beauty of cherry blossoms-why must they also coincide with the dreaded allergy season! MIR
