Purple flowering trees, gray concrete, blue sky, green leaves, and terra-cotta colored paint … lovely!
What a surprise to round a corner at a nearby nursery and find this car being used as a gigantic planter! Note the succulents growing where a head-light was once upon a time. Above is under the hood … below is a shot of the back seat and a little bit of the trunk. Fun!
Dogwood blossoms floating through the midst of a rain-washed green scene ~
Walking home at 5:00 PM, I thought, “what will my picture for today be?” and right away noticed the boots placed upside down on the posts of this structure protecting this tree from the ongoing and aforementioned infrastructure upgrades going on. While I was taking pictures of them (the boots), this steam shovel started going backwards and forwards behind the tree and boots, which made a nice backdrop I think! Also: new “spring green” leaves on the tree!
Tender green leaves against a white-ish wall … if you squint your eyes and imagine an overcast day, these windows could look like they’re hanging in the sky!
What is this? You may well ask … it’s a spherically shaped bud-vase full of water that for some reason has lots of bubbles in it … which may or may not have to do with the way the light coming through it (the bud vase) has refracted itself into those short rainbow spectrum lines arranged around its circumference! The green bit discernable inside the bud vase is the end of a plant cutting in the process (hopefully) of forming roots.
These flowers are a version of the ones featured in a post of almost exactly six months ago (here). Their green leaves and soft oranges contrasting with the maroon wall caught my eye as I was walking home from mailing today’s box of books and things … back to the big apple! A change of scene (in so many ways!) tomorrow!
