Sweet Smells of Spring
One reason biking is so much better than commuting by car is that it connects you to the world so much more.
This lets you enjoy the animals and plants along the way.
There is a particular yard at the corner of 42nd Street and E Avenue that is particularly nice.
And in recent weeks, the lilacs and crab apples, both of which are common along my commuting route, have been perfuming the air. Shown in photo is young crab apple in my front lawn. 3 huge pink older ones at MMC are a nice start to my ride home (come up the other side of the hill in the morning).
Makes for nice, sweet, spring rides!
