Spring has Sprung

in Just-
spring when the world is mud-
luscious the little
lame balloonman

whistles far and wee

and eddieandbill come
running from marbles and
piracies and it's

when the world is puddle-wonderful

the queer
old balloonman whistles
far and wee
and bettyandisbel come dancing

from hop-scotch and jump-rope and




balloonMan whistles

-- e.e. cummings

In honor of spring, I decided to take a few snapshots of the flowers. Being the hipster I am, I took some of the photos at night with flash.

A bed of roses in the dark

Close up of a flower petal

Branches of a tree with buddying pink flowers

But who could resist the sunshine?

Pink flowers on a tree

Purple flower buds on a branch

A yellow flower

Purple flowers in the grass

White flowers on a tree

Pink flowers on a tree

Decaying flower petals on concrete

A tree filled with pink flowers

Two trees filled with pink flowers

Trees filled with white flowers

Someone holds a bouquet of dandelions

It's spring!
