this almost makes up for the fact that nothing here stays open past 10:00pm

So maybe everything is covered with gigantic blobs of neon yellow pollen, and maybe some people's southern accents are so thick as to be inscrutable, and maybe it's hard to find good a good sushi restaurant and even if there was, it wouldn't matter, because you'd probably have to get in your car and drive for half an hour to get there. But one unequivocal thing I have to say about Atlanta is this: in the Spring, the weather here is amazing.

  1. Michelle -- The weather in the northeast has been amazing this spring as well. 80s last week, 70s this week. I have to say THANK GOD after the horrible winter that we just finished.

    I live in the South as well (north Texas to be exact) and I agree that the weather this spring has been AMAZING. A welcome change over that "record-setting snowstorm" that we got this winter (a whole 12 inches of snow! This city couldn't function! Ha.)

    Seems that the pollen has been extra bad this year...it's not normally this thick. If that makes you feel any better.

  4. OH WHAT AMAZING PICTURES!!!!!!!!!

    I love the colors - love the composition - love it all! Can't get over how very blue the sky is.

    Your family is so adorable.

    And I love the little line at the end of your post. I will confess to being ignorant of its source. Did you write that, or is it an excerpt from a famous work I should totally know... but don't?

    Again - lovely pictures!

  5. I'm pretty sure that last bit is a Zen koan that I remember from "Seymour: An Introduction" by J.D. Salinger...I'm not sure of the original writer, though.

    You do realize that the pollen is actually plant sperm, right?
