Springtime Springeth…

Plum blossoms by FWR.

And we're here for it. It's been a long winter. Although Willem's part of the planet is headed into fall, he seems to be quite comfortable, and reports that he's been very busy visiting the flora and fauna and birdies and such, and will soon have more reports for us. In the meantime, there's a lovely bird in this week's issue.

In the meantime, our contributors north of the equator have been busy, too. Things are budding out In the UK and Austria. We suspect from the photos we're getting that our photographers have fruit on their minds. If these gorgeous blossoms are anything to go by, this will be a banner year for apples, plums, and peaches. Here in Pennsylvania, everything's slower. It's been warm and sunny for a few days now: we suspect the greenery is skeptical. (Late snows are not unheard-of around here, and it's only April.)

From the north of Scotland come startling visuals from Paigetheoracle. He and his dog Luna (short for Lunatic) take you on an interesting tour of the area that includes glimpses of a visiting oil rig. I'm still trying to get over the idea of peripatetic oil rigs.

Paul checks in with some pansies, and a reminiscence from his misspent youth. Bluebottle not only spins yarns but also takes you along to see the historic buses of Southampton. Tavaron lets us in on her kids' adventures in and out of the kitchen. Our storytellers are at it again: you won't believe what's going on in these stories unless you read them, so go and do that. You may not believe what was going on in the movie Awix watched, but he'll be glad to tell you all about it.

In other words, this is a truly spring-worthy issue. Take it with you as you explore your own environment, and don't forget to bring your own cameras along so you can record things for us. Have a great week!

Quote of the Week: When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in a society, over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it.
