UConn in Bloom

A video essay documents the splendor of the season at UConn Storrs. ()

“Spring this year has got me feeling like a horse that never left the post,” Ella Fitzgerald once sang, and that sentiment especially resonates during what may be the quietest spring in UConn history.

But everywhere you look at UConn Storrs, you see signs of life and renewal: trees and flowers emerging from their winter repose in the soft colors of the season; the deep, emerald green of the Great Lawn and Horsebarn Hill; the full complement of local wildlife shaking off the torpor of the cold months to race around campus in the full bustle of life.

In this video by Ivan Zhang ’20 (CLAS), the Storrs springtime is on display in all its vivid splendor: the colors, the vistas, the inescapable feeling of renewed vigor and possibility. Soon it will be summer, with autumn and winter following after. No one can say at the moment what events might occur in our troubled moment, but this video reminds us of an essential truth: spring will come again to UConn.
