Every spring it is a good idea to go outside somewhere and see what survived to live another year. Today I went up to Middlesex Fells in Medford. Contrary to popular opinion, (unpopular, I suppose, in certain places) the world may not be quite on the verge just yet. I won't bore anyone with descriptions of what I saw while there. I'll let the pictures speak for me. The one thing I will share is that by doing this it was confirmed that I too have survived. I'll be keeping an eye on things just to make sure.
