the colours of spring

I have the feeling that a long time has elapsed since I have been here. I have forgotten to tell you about the beauties of spring, of how when I walk under a jacaranda tree these days I look up and see a purple sky, of how the catalpa trees leave a "popcorn" blanket under my feet and a sweet scent, of how the pink and red bougainvilleas are swept by the wind into islands scattered in the park, of how the rain pours suddenly in the late afternoons and thunderstorms roll into the night ... spring has been fast and beautiful and I feel times are changing!
