Weekly Photo Challenge: Today

  June 2, 2012

.

First thing today, a friend offered some seedlings for the garden my ex hubby has in my back yard. Howard loves to start seedlings, then offers them to his friends at no cost. My yard looks lovely every year and the veggies are always yummy !

.

Heavy rains with strong winds are expected to start tonight so I took some photos of some beautiful flowers that might not survive the storm. The storm is slow getting here which gives hope that maybe the forecasters are wrong ! This house on E. Main St. has a beautiful flowering bush on the left….unusually bright color.

The flowering bush up close and personal !

Another beautiful flowering bush at Meadowview, the senior housing apartments. This is next to the Robert and Mary Place … day care for Alzheimer’s patients….
a lovely program.

.

A towering horse chestnut tree.

.

I love the old house that the chestnut tree is in front of.

.

Lupines on Birch Avenue across from where I used to work. The colors are hybrid but still love them.

.

A stop at the Craft Barn…the local store for artist and craft supplies. I am working on a buoy for an auction and needed some supplies.

.

Luckily I had a specific paper I needed…the choices of fancy papers … some hand made, are endless.☺.

.

I delivered some paints to the nursing home where I used to be Director of Nursing and now a LPN friend works nights there…she needed some sparkly paints to finish her buoy for the Fisherman’s auction and the hanging planter was by the door. … just gorgeous.

.

There were irises of many colors, poppies, roses, and the Donald Little Park just down the street. So many flowers, so little time tonight. Went home after the nursing home “drop off” of paints to wait for the rain to start…hopefully after midnight. The rest of my day was a long nap, then blogging and an internet art class…several sessions I’d put off watching.
And that was the second of June 2012 !
