Stages of Spring from a University Parking Lot


March in Bay Area California-the grass is new green.  The trees think flowers.

At twilight trees lengthen their shadows.  Here and there the basic shapes of silvertone instead of color.


Later the trees in full bloom catch some sun while the sun plays hide and seek.


Spring begins to lose its brief season of bloom and green.  The grass shows heads which means one thing in California-brown will begin to creep in.  The blossom start showing leaves.  Fallen petals pile like snow on the edges of the parking lot.
