We finally ventured out this past weekend to get some fresh air all while still adhering to the social distancing rules. Didn’t quite turn out as planned though as when we got to the park it was a bit on the crowded side. Part of me wanted to stay in the car and head back home but I decided to just do a short walk, take some spring flower photos and then head home. People did keep to their own little family groups I am happy to report. Even though it was cloudy and threatening to rain – the wind, fresh air, blooms and just being out of the house for a moment felt great.
The magnolia trees were beginning to bloom and that whispered sweet nothings to all of my senses. Magnolia trees while beautiful are so delicate; a windstorm, heavy rain or change in temperature can turn the blossoms from beautiful to brown and damaged or just blown off and away. Glad I got to the trees before the thunder storm hit that same evening. Who knows what they may look like now.
I hope to return to this park in a few weeks when the tulips should be in bloom, that is if all things point to that being acceptable to do. More Saturday in the park images coming soon.
