A sunny weekend. A messy garden. If the weeds don't get out before everything grows in, it will be a terrible mess and one that will never get done well.
And the next day -- ouch!
I remember those muscles -- I haven't noticed them in a long while! So, at noon I decided to walk the "ouch" out and see what was in bloom on campus.
Much of the color was already turning to green.
It amazes me that we can wait so very long and then in almost a heartbeat the color is on its way out!
Even the geese seem muted!
But that didn't mean there was abundant color.
The tulip garden behind the old intramural building was in full bloom.
Tulips -- another short-lived flower. I couldn't stop taking pictures to savor in the future -- which the way things are going could be a week or two away!
The campus takes on a different atmosphere when the students are gone -- the banks are quiet, with only a few enjoying the sun.
And they are probably employees on lunch break! But not these folks -- they're working hard to make it beautiful.
I was rather fond of this lovely tree with a carpet of purple flowers. Alas, not enough time to take a break!
Of course, there are dog walkers by the river -- and more than a few flowers there, too.
It seemed as though the only noise was that of construction...
...and the squeals of children on a field trip!
Campus surprise for the day?
A cookie club! Who knew?
My walk isn't over -- but that's for another day!
