How can this be the end of May. Where has the time gone. I did not intend to post another flower picture today. Traffic was a mess coming home tonight so decided to go the back way. I had to stop for a red light and noticed a lot of unique things in front of an antique store. I made a quick left hand turn and ended up parking by the small park in town. When I got out of the car some flowers caught my eye and I walked inside the gardens. Did not realize that there was a small pond and a little waterfall. Took a bunch of shots but was not happy with them. Lighting was not right – will have to stop by another day at a different time of day. Then I noticed this tree and since I am trying to use the camera in manual mode and working on depth of field I took a bunch of pictures. Could not decide which one of these two I liked the best. Your thoughts.

Felt like summer today – temperatures hit 90 degrees and it’s supposed to stay warm for several days. Oh no – bring back the 70 degree temps. Stopped at the library on the way home for some books I had put on reserve. Love being able to go on the internet and put books on reserve. Wanted to do something today besides flowers so since books, wine and relaxing after work were on my mind ….

How would you like this job? Most people at work know I try to take a photo a day. They should – I have lots of photos all over my cubicle walls. One of my co-workers called me this morning and said I have your photo of the day you need to come into my office and hurry. So I grabbed my camera – was surprised to see 8 window washers on the building across the street. It was hard to take a good picture because of the angle and the reflections on the building. I have worked downtown for a number of years but have never seen that many window washers at once – usually it’s one or two. If you click on the picture it makes it bigger and you can see the window washers better

Could not believe all the different shades of pink in this one.
There are so many beautiful flowers in bloom this time of year. Took a walk around the neighborhood tonight and the flowers kept calling me – take my picture, no take mine. It was hard to decide which ones I like the best so posting a variety tonight. I wish I knew the name of all the flowers. Guess I need to buy a flower guidebook. It’s supposed to get much warmer tomorrow – high 80’s and stay warm for several days. Should have known it was too good to last. Enjoyed having the windows open and the cooler weather.
