Tipster/photographer Jason Patinkin just sent the following photos Bwog’s way. “Well bwog, I hope you enjoyed the last week of sitting on the steps, because once again Columbia taketh our favorite midday hangout.  Indeed the construction of wooden posts and metal bleachers across the steps begins today (or maybe yesterday),” he writes.

It’s that time of year again when graduation preparation coincides with the most beautiful week of the year. Gather ye steptime while ye may/Old Time is still a-flying/And this same flower that smiles to-day/To-morrow will be dying.

More of Patinkin’s photos after the jump.
