Saturday snaps

I biked a bit over 25km today, my first longer ride of the year, and it was glo­ri­ous. Here are a few pho­tos I took while I was out and about.

For my mon­ey, the first true sign of spring is not the robin but the dan­de­lion[1]Also, I’m amused at the fact that “dan­de­lion” comes from the French for lion’s tooth—dent de lion—but I learned in my French immer­sion school­ing that the French call ’em «pis­senlit» instead..
