very beautiful, mb.

i don't know why but when i view your blog lately there are huge blank spaces between text and photos. do you see it the same way or is it the format my computer is displaying of your blog? i don't notice this on any other blog.

Dale, that's pretty much what I thought. Spring in Portland is amazing.

Sky, thanks. I'll try to figure out what the problem is. Thanks for the heads up.

Z, we seem to be getting similar weather patterns. Hot and dry here, too.

Anonymous, your words paint quite a picture. Yes... I miss the rain.

Kia ora MB,
Beautiful as usual. I spent a spring in and around Portland back in the early 80's. It is one part of states, weather wise and geologically that reminds me of New Zealand. Cheers.

I thought you must be having a very magically moist summer until I saw where these were taken...

Very beautiful!

Loved the owl story and the poem below as well...

What do I like best, inside-out blue or shadowed peach labyrinth? Or intense artful spatters on white?

I hope you are happily neglecting your blog (I am guilty of committing some of the very same neglect!) and not unhappily neglecting your blog. That is, I hope the thief of time and art has not returned...
