On this first full day of spring, I went to Parque de Maria Luisa to see what I could see. Turns out, there are a lot of flowers in full bloom here in Sevilla this time of year other than the azahar (orange blossom). I sat by this reflecting pool for a bit and read a book:

The purple bougainvillea on this trellis were going strong:

The sun was so bright, it washed out this photo of the north tower of the Plaza de Espana:

In one of the lesser parks on the way home, I noticed these red/orange flowers:

It was pleasantly cool today.


I mostly read elementary probability and statistics today. I'll get back to working on the paper tomorrow.
