|Daffs (& mud) from my garden|
The annual panhellenic shantytown fundraiser for the homeless took place on the quad a couple of weeks ago, when the weather was still quite cold and raw (to my rather mean pleasure; it's hard not to notice that these events are never planned for say, January, but instead for the first week of spring, which may or may not actually be springlike in our climate, but which I suspect the organizers imagine will be pleasant).
It has now ceded its place to more spontaneous spring gatherings, which, this year, seem to feature hammocks and tightropes strung between trees (some of them rather spindly for the purpose, but they seem to be surviving so far), long gauzy skirts and other bohemian/somewhat '60s-ish apparel, and al fresco singing accompanied by (acoustic) guitars. There may also be frisbees, but they seem less numerous than in years past, and I don't think I've seen a hackey-sack for some time.
What does spring look like on your campus this year? What's new? What's missing from years past?
