The presumed cherry blossom tree turned white, and now… green?

Compare these photos to April 23…

I guess that’s the progression over weeks of time.  Well, spring in general is progressing.  Of course.  The people at USM like to install vibrant flowers.

(Apr 27 12:49 p.m.)
Red tulips and plant with violet/indigo colors. (Apr 27, 2016 12:49 p.m.)
(May 10 4:48 p.m.)
(May 10 4:48 p.m.)

It won’t be until summer, though, that you’d see flowers like these…

Wow. (June 30, 2015 3:56 p.m.)

It takes quite the color-correcting to get photos like those to look right.

(Apr 27 3:36 p.m.)
(Apr 27, 2016 3:36 p.m.)

…Stepped-on seeds, I presume.  Something I noticed: The tar is looking more yellowish due to the warmer season sun light. …Something I needed to notice to get the colors right in processing the photos.

…Just something to give you an impression of how large the trees at the park can get… and larger than this.

They repaired the sidewalk at Deering Oaks park.  For what it looked like prior… yeah, it needed repairs.

(Apr 9 5:22 p.m.)
The ‘1’ on the Speed LImit sign is also faded… (Apr 9 5:22 p.m.)

If you notice in the back, the park has a mini-beach for volley ball.

(Apr 17 4:32 p.m.)
(Apr 17 4:32 p.m.)
(May 10 5:06 p.m.)
(May 10 5:06 p.m.)

There was a game going on May 10th.

(May 10 5:09 p.m.)
(May 10 5:09 p.m.)

Baseball game, I mean. …Or softball— didn’t get close enough to see, really.

They emptied the pond…

(Apr 27 3:40 p.m.)
(Apr 27 3:40 p.m.)

Partly to install this:

(May 7 5:47 p.m.)
Bird house. (May 7 5:47 p.m.)

Of course, the water was restored, eventually shining brightly in the sun…

(May 10 5:11 p.m.)
(May 10 5:11 p.m.)

Even the dimmer days are brighter than winter.  (Of course.)

(May 7 5:09 p.m.)
Purple flowers(?) on a cloudy day. (May 7 5:09 p.m.)
Pine cones. (May 10 5:19 p.m.)
Pine cones on a not-cloudy day. (May 10 5:19 p.m.)
(Apr 21 3:54 p.m.)
(Apr 21 3:54 p.m.)

Well…that’s it for now.  Next time I’ll show you photos I took when I went to the beach. 🙂

Tis the season for grilling. (Or getting there.)
