Spring Purples

Look how purple these Virginia bluebells (Mertensia virginica) start out!And flowers, ready to open.


Still, spring is having a hard time soothing us. A year+ into Trumpism: a sizable percentage of the American population is militantly ignorant, authoritarian-minded, anti-rational, resentful, racist to the bone, and eagerly yearning for the alleged renewal that fascism promises. And the party weaponizing this 25-30% for the benefit of the one percent, the Republicans, have models for what they want to reduce America to. There’s the illiberal state of Hungary and the quasi-mystical organized crime syndicate called Russia, for two.

    speaking of illiberal–just back from Czech Republic, which has told the EU that it is not taking ANY refugees, despite agreement.

    Glad some nation’s have booted out some Russian diplomats. Unity in that is sending a message!
