Aww… the grass was just beginning to rise…
The skies were mostly blue Monday. Tuesdays, temperatures dipped low enough that the in-coming precipitation turned into a blend of rain and snow. The gutters were still dripping (water) during my walk. I got snow on the sides of my hair despite wearing a cap.
The weather’s returned to spring today. Three sunny days in a row, according to the Accuweather forecast. …But there is still snow on the ground around the house… So… how about some new photos to remind us of what spring is supposed to look like, alright? All right.
The birds were out…
Flowers on… trees?
The flags were out.
…I wonder if any were taken down today considering the freaky weather…
Saturday marked the day I got a successful panorama from a top floor window of the USM Portland building. …Okay, not 100% successful that I removed two partial cars from the image. (Can you spot my edits? Hint: They’re on the right side.)
No ‘repairs’ were necessary for a panorama taken Thursday.
A little something about the trees:
“… Many of the park’s mature oaks are under stress, as can be seen in the canopies of the trees. Poor soil, soil compaction and the lack of nutrients have a long-term impact on tree growth. This project is a joint effort of the Portland Public Services, the Friends of Deering Oaks and the University of Southern Maine.”
So the park may be ‘beautiful,’ but it takes human effort to keep it alive.
…Not counting the rocks, of course. …Well, they could be vandalized like some of the lamp posts, so I guess every bit of the park deserves some maintenance.
Well, I got more photos post about… and I’ve streamlined the process a bit… but you’re gonna have to wait, considering the kind of internet connection I have most of them time. 🙂
…Oh, green grass, what did you do to deserve this snow?
