Spring Has Sprung

The magnolias are busting out on the sunny side of Commonwealth Avenue, and you can smell them up and down the street. The white star magnolias began popping around Sunday and are in full bloom now, and the more prevalent pink trees are close behind. I'm guessing that this weekend will be primetime for that side of the street, even if the weather cools down.

Today was unseasonably warm, more like May than April. Consequently, there was an awful lot of bluish-white skin on view, including my own surprised feet — I traded my boots for uncomfortable ballet flats. 

I thought this couple captured the spirit of the day, cruising on their tandem bike, even sans helmets.
