The fields and trees are swelling with life, you can almost see them expanding as you watch. Trees flame with green candled tops and chestnut blossom stalks are wearing long green skirts. Dandelions polkadot the pastures and gather in the ditches, round trees and all along the roads like they're watching a parade or cheering on the passing cars. 2 riders on glowing brown chestnut horses cause vehicles to slow, swooping out widely as they pass to avoid startling them. There are numberless, countless, infinite shades of green everywhere you look. One of the slopes behind our neighborhood is packed with dandelions. They look like the filled bleacher seats of a stadium whose team colors are YELLOW and green. Dandelions don't just announce themselves, they SHOUT. POW! We're HERE!

Anders and Karin are off for most of the day at a race event involving 2- and 4-wheeled vehicles. I just dropped Martin off with his outdoor group and have just under 2 hours free time at home. Farmor is coming over this afternoon, because they've been away and she can't stand another day without seeing the grandkids. My plans for the afternoon involve going to the nursery to buy some glowing, growing things and to the dandelion bleachers to photograph my children in the sunshine.

Happy Birthday, albatrossity!
