Have another flower. It’s (almost) summer.
Purple flower in bloom.
Today turned out to be summer-like, with the temperature climbing to 24? and the sun doing its thing, so I headed out after work to capture some neighborhood flowers on virtual film. Here’s a yellow rose.
Buttercup in the rain.
Orange bloom enjoying the spring sun.
A pretty flower to go with the pretty awful wordplay.
A dandelion out behind the condo, poised to spread itself.
A few flowers along the Brunette River. Technicially one is considered a weed–but an edible weed!
I’m actually kind of considering getting a macro lens for my camera, though I have to admit the iPhone 12 does a pretty nice job on these close-ups.
April can be a rather damp month sometimes, so I wanted to record for posterity that we are in the middle of a week-long stretch of beautiful, summer-like weather. It was 23 today. 23! In April!
It was nice. I like this April weather.
Here’s a tulip, which I also think is nice.
It was actually yesterday, so I’m late, but here is a summary in handy list form:
Today–the second day of spring–was different!
I actually don’t mind the rain much–I went out in it twice today. But I am looking forward to fewer showers and more sun, being able to go out wearing a t-shirt and shorts and things being green instead of dead. I have had my fill of winter for another year, especially one spent wearing a mask in every public space.
Finally, here’s a flower so this post isn’t just me complaining about the weather:
A few photos from around the neighborhood taken between showers.
