Day One Hundred Twenty-six

Tulips!

I’m not sure if it’s due to the cool, late spring we’ve had or what’s going on, but the tulips this year are gorgeous!  On my walk today I couldn’t help but traipse on a few lawns to snap some pictures.

Tulips!

There are so many different colors too!  I only remember red and yellow tulips when I attended the Tulip Festival in Holland, Michigan, as a child.  Either the Dutch have been busy developing new colored tulips over the past few years, or I have a bad memory.  Whatever the case, I love seeing all of these colors as I am walking around my neighborhood!

Good day, good walk!

Day One Hundred Twelve

Color

A few weeks ago, I took one of WordPress’ Photography Challenges focusing on color.  I struggled to find any color other than the grays and browns of late winter on my walk that day.  But today, as I walked around my neighborhood, I had no trouble finding color at all (especially if you include white)!

Day Ninety-three

More Signs of Spring

I enjoyed a nice long walk around my neighborhood today.  In addition to perennials popping up through the soil, I noticed other signs of spring:

  • robins running to and fro trying to finish their massive to-lists
  • CPAs running to and fro trying to finish tax returns (not really, but the robins did remind me of some of the CPAs I used to work alongside–especially at this time of the year)
  • the professional landscapers are back at work

But the best sign of spring is that I got a bit overheated and had to remove my gloves and unzip my jacket.

Good day, good walk!

Day Ninety-two

In Search of Spring

I headed out, all bundled up in a hat and gloves, walking in my neighborhood on this unseasonably cool day.  With no real plan in mind, I went looking for signs of spring–any signs.  I had to walk longer than I had planned (not a bad thing, for certain), but I finally found evidence that spring has sprung!

Day Sixty-six

Sick of It. Sick of It.IMG_20130307_150044

The sun melted some of Tuesday’s 10″ snowfall today, but after spending a few warmer, dryer hours in St. Louis yesterday, today’s slight melt wasn’t enough for me.

As I walked around my neighborhood today, I snapped pictures of all the things that are starting to annoy me about winter.  It’s just my little way of fighting back.
