Last Thursday, April 12, after spending the morning driving to the nearest Costco to pick up some much-needed supplies I felt like I wanted to get outside for the rest of the day, it worked out, the afternoon weather turned out to be lovely; the excuse I needed to grab my camera and drag some people to the park with me.
Sakura tunnel; the cherry blossom trees along this road form a natural tunnel that later in the season when the wind blows the blossoms fall to the ground like pink snowflakes.
Elderly Couple; I wonder how many times in their long lives they have come to this small park to enjoy the cherry blossoms?
Spring repose; a number of people had the same idea as I had, visiting the park and relaxing under the cherry tree. Nearly everyone had a camera or camera phone
Greeted by a stranger; upon walking into the greenhouse I was confronted with this strange hanging plant (Jade vine)
Forest of ferns; I wish I had my macro lens with me when I found this stand of ferns in the greenhouse.
Violet clump; the path through the bamboo woods has many small clumps of violets
Shades of colour; I have been to this small amusement park on a number of occasions but not once had I noticed that the Ferris Wheel is actually like a giant colour wheel.
There are several parks, big and small, near where I live, so I feel quite fortunate to live in this area and to have had such a great Spring so far to get out and enjoy them.
