Spring journey

The lilac bushes at Chez Arrow are blooming! The flowers appear more blue in the evening light...

And they look more violet in the morning light...

Either way, it makes me happy to see them. I hope the flowers are still in bloom when I return from Taiwan next month. I'm off to Taipei for two weeks with the fifth graders...while there I also hope to see relatives, eat yummy food, and do fun things in addition to working. And I am taking a couple of knitting projects with me...hopefully there will be some progress on them!

I can't imagine having those in my very own yard. They are just so pretty!
And I can't wait to see Taiwan through your blog. Very exciting!
