I love the light in springtime when the trees are just beginning to get green. (Am I always saying this?) These three pictures all show it: the illuminated edges of leaf and petal; the light that seems to emanate from within each plant.

At one point, Daisy yelped out from her stroller, "I saw my tiny penguin!!" We thought she was just trying to imitate her brothers (we'd just been talking about how we wished we could see a bunny again) but then she pointed to this little quail running across our path. Who DID look like her tiny penguin! We didn't have the heart to tell her it wasn't one, so we henceforth referred to the quail as "penguins" too.
