Springtime and Zombies

Spring is here. On today's ride we saw maples blooming (ah-choo!) Out in the scrub, the few deciduous shrubs and shrubby trees had pushed out a haze of green new growth.

Shrubs and trees with new green shoots.

Normally on Saturday, particulary a pretty day like today, there are lots of cyclists, joggers, and walkers about. But not today. Biking down the deserted roads, it felt like we were in the opening scene of one of those post-apocalyptic horror movies. It sure made for a fast ride. (No, we were not fleeing possible roaming hordes of zombies. Just making jokes about them.)
