May Flowers

I was stopped at a light in the historic Pioneer Square district when I noticed the flower baskets in the area were blooming again. May heralds the beginning of the sunnier months here in the Pacific Northwest, and these baskets signal this shift in our mindscape. I had just seconds before the light changed to whip out the camera and shoot this. Visitors to Pioneer Square are treated to an abundance of gorgeous blooms in prominent hanging baskets from most buildings and street poles in the area.

How in the world do they get water to these hanging baskets? Is there a little guy on stilts walking around with a watering can? Or is there water piped to the baskets? It is an amazing sight to me. I have never seen anything like it indoors much less outside.

I am anxious for you to see the Rose-Breasted Grosbeak that came to Brookville, Ohio yesterday. It is the first one I have seen since we moved here 44 years ago.
