Spring Time Stroll Through The University

    These past few weeks have seen an explosion of spring color in and around my town.  All throughout the University of Oregon are perfect examples of this seasonal change, with the sudden budding and blooming of flowers on the ornamental trees and bushes spread throughout the campus.  I took a walk through there recently to get a glimpse of some of these beauties and, as usual, take some photographs.  My first stop was one of the libraries, called the University of Oregon Library and Memorial Quadrangle.  Above is its plum tree lined walkway (part of the 'quad') and the library building itself is below.

The ornamental cherry tree above is located near Gerlinger Hall.  Aren't those 'pom pom'-like blossoms impressive?  I love how they dangle and seem to bounce, as if they are going to dance at any minute.

The University of Oregon School of Law has a magnificent line of blooming trees and bushes along the entire front of the building.  And below you can see a few details from the entranceway; a pink magnolia tree and some pink and white azalea bushes.

And here is a beautiful white flowered magnolia tree in the back courtyard of the Teaching and Learning Center, with its gorgeous blossoms wafting in the breeze:

With longer days and warmer temperatures, it is a pleasure to get outside and experience the vibrant colors of this wonderful spring season.
