Milkweed Seeds

Went for a walk to the voting location today, and stopped for a minute to get some photos of milkweed letting loose its seeds.

It was a good day. Exercising our right to vote, exercising, and a few nice images.

Tonight’s walk – six pictures, three different birds

Not much to say about this. Hubby and I went for a walk tonight, and I didn’t shoot too many photos. Three of them were three different birds, though – here they are.

Seagull, who just picked up a live crab, and flew off with him when he saw I was interested.

Travel Theme: Blossom

Those of you who follow my blog know that I love to take pictures of flowers, so you can imagine my excitement to see that Ailsa has chosen blossom as this week’s travel theme. Here are some recent blossoms:

Now, THAT is a lot of pink! I normally try to get a wider variety of colors when I shoot flowers, but it seems like the early spring blooms are overwhelmingly pink (except tulips, but I posted a recent – different color – tulip here, along with some other pink flowers, so this purple/pink is all I have left).

In a few short hours, I’ll be on an airplane, headed to meet my professor and classmates for a study abroad program. If you all behave yourselves, I might manage a few posts from Cali, Colombia in the next couple weeks (the most foreign place I’ve ever traveled is Boston, so this could get interesting. Did you know that one dollar is more than 2,000 pesos? That’ll be fun math!).
