I want to revive something Teju Cole used to do on birbsite: everyone post photos of whatever's blooming around you, tagged with #florespondence and where you are. Please boost and take part. Making it a reply to me is optional but I'll always enjoy florespondence from all over. Here are the #Seattle daffodils that prompted me to get things started.

"Megalovania from Undertale played on a glass of water and a spoon" is a YouTube video that lived up to all my dreams. Also, best closed captioning ever.
