Purple flowering trees, gray concrete, blue sky, green leaves, and terra-cotta colored paint … lovely!
This photo also falls into the time-honored category of “flowers against a weathered fence.” It’s just a portion of a nearby front yard … some of which has a much heavier concentration of the red poppies than this area does … all in all, quite a wildly cheerful array!
A great big pink and lavender planet of blossoms … with some smaller blue planets in its orbit in the distance …
What a perfect April morning (with our tax dollars at work)!
Such a pretty color combination! And in other news, I have a little information on the architectural ornament in this post here. It seems that especially with regard to its outer shape, that it’s in the general category of arabian ornament: e.g. like sample #12 in the chart below from The Grammar of Ornament by Owen Jones (1809-1874).
Spring seems to have arrived! We’ll know for sure when the ramps arrive. While admiring the beautiful day, my thoughts wandered again to the beauties of the Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport: the aforementioned free snacks (including granola and milk) and coffee? Served in and on actual porcelain cups and bowls!
One of the trees mentioned in yesterday’s post that’s blooming in Washington Square Park. The combination of overcast lighting, pale pink blossoms, and sandy-colored brick (not to mention the blue tint of the windows–of Judson Memorial Church) is quite nice, I think!
