Meandering through the ‘hood

Every morning (usually late morning) the pups and I meander through the neighborhood. They sniff and do other doggy stuff and I take my camera and do some visual sniffing. Every day different things catch their noses and my eye. Today was a mountains and blossoms day.

Forsythia is more reliable than a groundhog.

It felt like someone flipped the switch and now it’s really spring.

Somewhere out there

I live in a bowl, an often cloudy bowl at that, and rarely see a true horizon. I never really thought about that much but a friend who moved to this area from the prairies of Colorado complained that she sometimes feels claustrophobic because she can’t see to the distance. I may be the other way: I noticed that I rarely take a picture of just the horizon. Here are a few, all taken far from home.
