Determined to have something to write a blog post about, I took my Tablet with me on my walk to the post office, and I took the long way there and back. For another reason, snow is possible this weekend, and I wanted to get more pictures of flowers while I could.
It was one of those bright, sunny days where I couldn’t really see the picture when I was taking it. The above was taken near my house. I especially liked the blue chair with a plant on it. I also liked the artwork in the windows. I appreciate people’s efforts to decorate.
Regular readers may remember this as the house that previously hosted the Plant That Ate Bellinger Street. A couple weeks ago I took a picture of a brave daffodil brightening the area. Today I saw a few more daffodils and a couple tulips. I was delighted.
I turned away from the post office, because I knew had seen some purple tulips on one of my morning runs. I was going to continue along Church Street for some red tulips, but I saw a couple of kids on bicycles and did not want to get in their way so turned down Henry Street.
I was glad I had gone that way when I saw a pink flowering tree. I love flowering trees and have only seen white ones so far.
One of my favorite things about spring is the delicate green of trees just beginning to grow their leaves.
After I took a picture of the green, I tried another of the pink. Like I said, I can never tell which ones are going to look good.
As I walked down Park Avenue (ooh!) toward Meyers Park, I saw a burst of yellow in a flower bed I have photographed before. It turned out to be dandelions, but they looked so pretty, I took a picture anyways. These are my favorite dandelions of the year, before they turn into puff balls. I think the bright yellow looks so cheerful.
This was the first half of my walk. I took more pictures on my way home from the post office, but I think I will save them for tomorrow’s post. It will save my from having Lame Post Friday.
