After enjoying all the beautiful weather we have been blessed with, we are now experiencing some chilly temperatures. And snow. Yes, just this morning, we got a “dusting”. You understand that I love the winter, but this is the end of April. I don’t enjoy seeing the flowers and bushes get roughed up! So….
I decided to post some springlike photos I took last week. Michelle had an interview in downtown Rochester (again) so the camera and I wandered around just a bit. I was afraid to go too far, lest my skirt fly up into my face! Yes, it was very windy that day! So, here are some downtown photos….
Wow…I took quite a few photos in such a short amount of time!
Michelle called and said she was done, so Mark and I headed over to pick her up. Upon picking her up, I did something unusual for me.
I suffer from an affliction called I never open my mouth and tell the family what I want to do. I am accused of this on a regular basis….the family insists that if I want/need something, I need to tell them. And so, I asked if perchance Highland Park wasn’t *too* far away? In checking with GPS, we discovered it was “only a couple miles away”. Now, I was really excited.
Blue skies. Puffy white clouds. Lots of sunshine. Wow, all these conditions add up to a nice opportunity to take photos. Highland Park on a really nice day….how could I not love this! (Sorry, but you, Dear Reader, are about to get innundated with photos. You ARE forewarned!)
I have previously mentioned that Rochester is famous for its Lilac Festival. I think I read the festival begins May 11 this year. I am including photos of some Lilacs I took at the park. As you can see, the Lilacs were out pretty much, already. I am wondering what they are going to look like in a couple of weeks….I am thinking they may be spent by then! And yes, the fastival takes place in Highland Park.
I sure covered a lot of territory in a short amount of time. I was only at the park for about half an hour.
On the way home, we passed by the Erie Canal, so I thought perhaps I should take a quick peek there as well. Don’t worry…there are only a few pictures left!
I don’t know what the weather is like in your neck of the woods. but I feel better just seeing these photos! It’s like a breath of fresh spring air!
