Week 25: Nature's Neon

Happiness is... gathering the Consear-side gals together for a weekend—sisters, daughters, and nieces. I usually have to travel 650 - 1,000 miles to do this, but it's worth it for the laughs and good conversation. And a few rounds of telephone pictionary. And too many cookies. Spring is busily emerging up in Portland/Tacoma/Victoria/Vancouver/Seattle. Trees look dull and winter-bare until you notice the chartreuse buds on each twig. And so much moss! Enjoy this... green? yellow? (There were debates.)

A special thanks to all of my guest contributors and "advisors" this week—I'm so happy to be related to you all!
