…with SPRING in my steps. What a gorgeous week it has been around here–finally. It has warmed up nicely, the sun has been out most days and everything is blooming. Since I have complained about what a rotten Spring it has been until now, I thought I would share with your some of my photo captures from Sunday. It started with a 7AM walk:
A little later in the morning, I admired my tulips. I think they are multiplying on their own.
In the afternoon we traveled to Mishawaka, Indiana to my folks (bien sur!) and to visit a Japanese garden my mom had told me about. I have bugged her for a week to keep me posted on the bloom status. Today was the day–we had to go! Behold the beauty:
Isn’t it beautiful? I would add that it was peaceful…but not so much. There were many people hobnobbing around, enjoying the blossoms and atmosphere. And lots of cameras clicking away. I had to ask one couple to vacate the red bridge so I could get a good shot of it. I asked sweetly, of course, which lead to a conversation about my town and our monthly (huge) antiques fair. But I will leave you with two photos that well illustrate how my mind works. Since I was visiting a Japanese garden it was total “de rigueur” to eat California Spring Rolls for our picnic dinner:
And here is an example of how my mind, more often than not, does not work:
While snapping our usual “self-portrait”, my mom told me to look at something which is all the cue I needed to “forget” I was taking a picture. What can I say? I am a goof.
Hope you have a fantastic Monday!
