Itchy trigger finger

It is nearly May and it is really cold in Portland.  Thank goodness it hasn't stopped the beautiful blooms.  We bundled up and went for an evening walk.  Despite the constant flack from Mr. French, I got a couple of shots I think are pretty keen.  

Ahem, ahem...can I please have please have your attention...I received this wonderful award from my sweet blogger friend,Fog and Thistle:

This made my weekend.  I want to follow suit and pass on the love, but I can't pick one or two or three, I am taking the easy way out and giving it to each and every one of the lovely folks in my blogroll.  Thanks to all for making my cloudy spring a little brighter.
