Happy Earth Day, Have Some Flowers

On Wednesday on my way home from work I missed my bus.  I didn’t actually see my bus so I can only assume that it was early as I was on time.  This meant that I took the other bus that drops me off about 5 or 6 blocks from home.  As it was a gorgeous day I had the opportunity to walk, pick up a (losing) lottery ticket, and take some photos of flowers along my way home.

While Spring always makes me a little sad, Spring flowers are my absolute favorite.  I think it has something to do with the fact that Spring flowers come in a riot of colors, but SO many of them are purple.  Purple is my favorite color, always has been.  So, enjoy some photos of the spring flowers that are still out.  It may have been in the upper 70’s yesterday and we may have had a wacky mild winter, but it’s Spring in New England.

Geoff and I stumbled upon this today and thought that it was worth sharing.  If you can watch it without tearing up a bit you’re doing better than me.
