This one made me cringe a little as I tend to experience sentences like, "Find where you connect with the annual spring experience..." as vomit inducing rather than inspirational in a more traditional sense. That said I knew that like all these assignments what it really means is, "Go out and take some pictures. Bring in the 10 you think are your best, we'll tell you if you were right or not." Backyards are getting me all atwitter right now so here you go, a truncated tour of the backyards of Somerville.
The following four are my "best" from my week. Touch the pictures to make them grow. See? I'm into spring and making things grow. So there.
And now, the best of the rest!
