Spring Has Sprung

Ah, springtime in Portland, Maine, and the orchids are in bloom. No, wait, this photo was taken last week in San Diego. Still a few more weeks (months) until it looks like this here.

And speaking of San Diego, the photo at the bottom is the storefront of the finest taqueria/burrito shop I've ever eaten at, Nico's, in an out-of-way part of that city. And also in San Diego is a fine wine shop, the San Diego Wine Company. One of this month's features there is a 2006 Givry from Michel Sarrazin in the Cote Challonnaise in Burgundy, which, at $20, is a stunning bargain in red Burgundy.
