MOCOW part3

It was a lovely morning--no wind, rain, or hot sun, the birds were out chirping, and the flowers still blooming (sounds like the start to a storybook, just put a "once upon a time" at the beginning)--I went for a nice long walk this morning down Blaine to 6th, down 6th almost to main, back to the apartment, then over to 3rd (I saw a really neat looking flower the other day, but didn't have the camera with me, so I went back to get it), and then back again to the apartment. Here's what I found:



every shape, size, and color of tulips can be found around town










a porch swing...imagine how nice it would be to sit out there with a friend or a book




a side gate








paper whites















this is actually a tree in bloom








it looks like they even come up "volunteer"


a furry little friend




most of the streets have large trees that over hang the sidewalks and some of the road




a gardener must live here--the whole front yard is covered in flowers as dense as these!


look at the moss!


























this house reminds me of Ms. Lavender's cottage in the Anne of Green Gables books




a colorful house


pansies on the ground...without a fence around them...bunnies must not be a problem here =)




my favorite picture =)


lots of people bike here!


the really neat flower:

is it a bleeding heart?

The pictures are lovely. My favorite is the porch swing....they are such a common thing in the South! :) I've always wanted one.
So glad you're headed home!
Love,
Mrs. Poff
