Spring at Green Lake.

I walk at Green Lake in all four seasons. And those of you who have followed this blog over the last couple of years know that I photograph it in all seasons as well.

I walked later than usual today, and the paths were filled with walkers, strollers, bicycles, scooters, skateboards and in line skates.

Not everything is ready to turn green or bloom yet, but the shape of things to come can be seen.

This view over toward the Bathhouse Theatre is one of my favorites, all year round.

There are choruses of narcissus and daffodil everywhere. The plantings are entirely naturalistic.

And here in all its glory is one of the oldest trees in the park. It has great bones and will become even more spectacular in the next week.

We are so lucky to have parks. And libraries. They belong to everyone, part of our "common wealth."
