THOSE OF YOU who follow my garden blog know we who live in the Pacific Northwest have been forced to endure some awfully fickle weather of late. It's been a roller coaster of snow, rain, wind but very little sunshine. Yesterday however, by some sheer miracle, the skies parted for a short time while daughter number 2 (I have 3) and I were running errands. We decided to spend a few moments shooting photos in the park.
This particular park in Albany, with its classy riverside location plays host to many events in the summer including outdoor concerts. In the winter, however, um... not so much. With all the rain we've had the chocolate waters are swollen well beyond their borders.
We strolled along the riverside walkway, basking in the blue sky and early spring sunshine. Such a rare commodity this year.
I know this one. I used to have it in my garden. I wonder what ever happened to it. (Viburnum tinus)
To contrast, the photo below shows one of the many historic homes in Albany. Don't you just love the color and architectural details? I wonder if a lady named Barbie lives here.
Thank you for taking a walk with us. Have a great week.
