Natural r-Evolution

Our weekend perambulations this weekend took us out in some cold, but sunny, weather. The quality of light is just a little different, signalling the gentle tilting of the earth towards the sun (at least in our hemisphere!) The trees and bushes clearly have a sense of what is happening. The sand in the volleyball court was visible, no longer under a mantle of white, the shadows are a little sharper, and Bonnie is preparing for beach volleyball again.

It appeared that at least one of the rhinos near Divinity Hall was also taking notice. At first (REALLY bad joke alert) I thought it was a RHINOvirus. Then I realized it was Darwin's 200th birthday (and the 150th anniversary of the publication of 'On the origin of species.')

Happy Birthday, Darwin! Many happy evolutions.
