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.

Spring has sprung, sorta.

Today is rainy and overcast, but the last few days have been lovely.  As much as you all know how I do love the winter, I do actually like spring.  Even if it does inevitably lead to summer, spring has some really great flowers.

Easter photos

Easter is a special time of year at King’s Chapel, as it is the only time that the stained glass window is visible.  So Saturday night I opened up the shutters, and then Easter morning I got a picture when the morning sun was shining through it.

The window dates from 1863, so not as old as the building itself.














I took some pictures of all the Easter flowers too.  You can see them below the cut.

Bulletins from the animal kingdom

Easter is almost upon us and that means a couple of things: spring is coming (no, really, it is, promise!), Geoff and I will be *really* busy this weekend, people will be doing stupid and ill advised things like getting their kids bunnies, chicks, and ducklings for their baskets on Sunday morning, and the annual seal skin kill is going on in Canada.

Our wedding photo site

Hi everyone,

I have reason to believe that I am going to have a LOT of photographs coming my way.  Video as well, but a LOT of photos from this wedding and everything leading up to it.  Therefore, I have created a photo and video share site on Shutterfly.  If you have photos or videos to share please go ahead and upload them there.

The URL for the site is http://ourweddingnovember2011.shutterfly.com/ and you can upload directly to the site or you can email pictures to the site via the email address ourweddingnovember2011@sfly.com.  Please feel free to send things directly there rather than sending them to us, it will be easier for us to parse them that way and to decide what we want to do with them.

If you have anything of questionable content or a truly horrible photo of one of us (read: me) then feel free to ask first.  There is currently only one photo on the site, so feel free to send on over anything you have from the Bachelor party, the Bachelorette party, the decorating of the reception space, etc.

Thanks, everyone.


ETA: This is important!  I can make a folder for you and then you’ll get a personalized email address to which you can send your photos.  That way you don’t have to log in to shutterfly, create an account, or figure out how to upload without creating a login.  This is EXTREMELY easy for me to do so if you’d like me to do it PLEASE just let me know and I’ll set it right up.

Brain Scans: Day 4- Flowers!

This morning as I was in the hours between taking my morning meds and finally dropping off to sleep (total time awake almost 24 hours) a nice old man with a Southie accent arrived and delivered my flowers!  Very exciting. They are from my Mom, Dad, Brother, and Sister.  😀
