Civic beauty

I have written here before about how much I love Marin's Civic Center. Last weekend, during a brief respite from the everlasting rain of 2006, we trotted up to the "scenic overlook". The bright blue roof, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright to blend in with our (usually) perennially blue skies, looked quite cheery when backed by the dark rain clouds.

The abandoned terrace, where baby ducks will play, should the warm spring weather ever arrive, looked particularly bright, like a daycare center that was all spruced up and ready for a new class of students.

The echium, or Pride of Madeira, is finally in bloom. Aside from being my favorite color, they are just so grand. The purple and yellow of signs of spring are everywhere.
