I fell in love with this wall and this citrus tree at the Chinese Garden in Portland. As I stared out the windows while traveling from the airport to downtown Portland my raced with all kinds of grand ideas for the kinds of botanical pictures I would like to take. In the end I was almost completely sidetracked by other things I saw but am thankful that I still have the opportunity to pursue those ideas given that we are still trudging our way through the last dregs of winter here in Toronto.

And that, in a nutshell, is the only thing about winter for which I am grateful. My fingernails are metaphorically bleeding from all of the clawing at the walls of winter I have been doing with my mind.

Song: "Because" The Beatles. But really you have to listen to the rest of that side of Abbey Road all in one sitting. I also love "Golden Slumbers." But I'm just repeating myself now. I've already been through a long and painful Abbey Road addiction.
