Minute Man National Park

We had been to the Lexington and Concord before but never to Minute Man National Park until this week. It is a beautiful park and you can walk through the woods adjacent to the battlefield where the Minute Man jogged through the woods to reengage the British Troops. This tactic won the battle because the British were convinced there were many more soliders than there actually were.

Window with A View

Most of the time when you travel and stay in hotels near the highway you get your choice of view. You can view the front parking lot or rear parking lot. As a Marriott Gold Elite member I almost always get upgraded. This time it was with it.

This is the view from the Aloft in Lexington Massachusetts. We saw a variety of animals and birds during pour stay and still had the convenience of being close to the highway.

Today’s Walk Through Regent Square

We have a young active dog and each day Lady Trey requires about four miles of walks to keep her calm and well balanced. We live in Regent Square which is one of Pittsburgh’s best neighborhoods for walking. It borders Frick Park so you can walk through neighborhood streets or paths through the woods.

On today’s walk we came across a beautiful variety of daylily that I have never seen before. The colors are quite striking and I thought worthy of sharing.

Art Deco Masterpiece

My daughter asked me to find a suitable image for a site she is working on involving the city of Chicago. I sent her some images and once again was struck with the beauty of this building which is symbolic of the Second City.

When ground was broken for the Wrigley Building in 1920, there were no major office buildings north of the Chicago River. The Michigan Avenue Bridge was still under construction. Today this magnificent architectural structure is a symbol of the great city of Chicago and a National Landmark. It is a true art deco masterpiece and rivals the Empire State Building in New York as a symbol of that style.

Columbine from Our Regent Square Garden

One of my favorite spring flowers are columbine. There are over 70 species of columbines and innumerable hybrid species. They come in a variety of colors. They also seem to be deer and rabbit resistance allowing them to achieve a full bloom.

Pink Daffodil

Every year my wife plants additional daffodils. Living near Frick Park we like them because deer won’t eat them. In fact we discovered you can protect your tulips by surrounding them with daffodils. Deer and rabbits will stir clear.

She surprised me this year with these late blooming daffodils that have a pink fringe around the trumpet. I had never seen them before.

Bleeding Heart in Our Regent Square Garden

After my fourth year of photographing this plant I finally got an image I like. The trick is a bright overcast day without any hard shadows to ruin the delicate nature of the bloom.
