We Love These Signs of Spring

The folks over at the student-run blog Onward State have posted an album of spring photos to their Facebook page. The photos all were taken in the gardens outside the Hintz Family Alumni Center, and they’re excellent. The photographer, Eric Weiss, did what smart (and limber) photographers do: He got down on his stomach and shot the flowers and ducks at ground level.

Looking at the photos, I wasn’t 100 percent sure they could be from this year—Eric found a lot more color than I would have thought was out there at this time of year. (The gardens are right outside my window, and I walk past them almost daily on my way to and from lunch.)

So I went out just now to look more closely, and ran into Theresa Barger, a groundskeeper from Physical Plant who happened to be planting some annuals. And Theresa said that, sure enough, the blooms I saw on the Onward State album are right here—she pointed out the primrose near the gazebo, for example, and the daffodils near the “Olympic Wannabes” sculpture. They all just popped up this week.

Anyway, thanks to Onward State for giving us a much-needed infusion of spring.

    The start-up costs can be a bit high, but can be easily recovered with consumers flooding in for the service.
