Lately

One day getting sunburnt, the next bundling up in layers because it's downright chilly out.

Sunshine, rain, hail, in quick succession.

This is Spring in our part of Oregon... At least we haven't had any late snowfalls this year.

It is turning so green outside that it sometimes hurts my eyes. Glowing shades of the brightest chartreuse with flowers, flowers, flowers everywhere. Cherry blossoms and dogwood and lilacs and the bulbs springing from the ground. The earth has waited long enough and all of that saved up energy is bursting into the air, leaving behind a dusting of pollen on every surface.

He wants to eat the double blooms on the flowering cherry because they look like cotton candy... She breathes them in so deeply that they tickle her nostrils and make her laugh.
