A tomb, a hawk, some geese, a lot of statues, nested eggs, and a few other things I saw on a Good Friday’s ride (and a few words, too)…

Okay, so a couple things. Firstly, I apologize because this is probably way more pictures than you care to look at on a blog. But I just couldn’t choose so I thought I’d load a bunch. Anyhow, today of course was Good Friday. And you probably gather by now that I am not a literalistContinue reading “A tomb, a hawk, some geese, a lot of statues, nested eggs, and a few other things I saw on a Good Friday’s ride (and a few words, too)…”

A couple things that I saw while walking this evening…

Despite the calm look of these photos it was quite wind this evening, and I shot these just before it started to rain. I had gone out for a walk as this was by far the warmest evening of the year thus far (66F).  I of course took a camera with me, and these areContinue reading “A couple things that I saw while walking this evening…”

A few of the things I saw while riding my bike and walking yesterday….

Yesterday was such a beautiful spring day, and it was one of those days where I had so much I wanted to accomplish that I became a bit overwhelmed and decided to go for a bike ride instead. Therapy. And you’ve probably figured out by now that I really love to explore my own city.Continue reading “A few of the things I saw while riding my bike and walking yesterday….”

Just one of the reasons I choose to ride a bike…

I’ve mentioned in previous posts but not in quite a while that one of the things I really like about riding a bike is that I am an active part of the environment around me, that I am out in the elements. But even more than that, when I’m on a bike I see thingsContinue reading “Just one of the reasons I choose to ride a bike…”

Plus de Fleurs (or…nature blows me away)

Okay, so yes, I realize that I sometimes get carried away with photos of flowers. But I can’t help myself…their incredible and natural beauty blows me away (especially when looked upon through a camera lens or close up). All of these flowers are growing in my next door neighbor’s front yard (thanks Melissa!). And I’mContinue reading “Plus de Fleurs (or…nature blows me away)”

Crocuses and Lillies…evidence of spring

Despite the cold temps, these plant still manage to push through the damp soil and reach for the sun. Amazing isn’t it? In a few month’s time the crocuses will be a memory and the tiger lillies (two below) will all but have taken over my garden. Urban Simplicity.
