I couldn't get out of the door fast enough this morning.
It has finally stopped raining and with the
fog and soft air, it just smelled like an English spring day.
So, camera in hand, off I went:
Fort Niagara, across the Niagara River was barely visible.
This homeowner has obviously been reading this year's garden fashion magazines
'black' and white flowers are the latest thing!
All this rain has sent the tulip magnolia petals to the ground
making pink carpets of the sidewalks.
Not quite all the trees uprooted by the storm two weeks ago have been cleared away just yet.
Don't you just love how life hangs on regardless!
Someone's pretty blue and green garden...
and clumps of wildflowers
and petit tulips growing by the side of the road.
Then there were these two beauties, just itching to get into the water, I'll bet!
jet-boat rain slickers,
and boats waiting for the bus-loads of tourists to arrive,
and Charlotte's web highlighted by the morning dew.
Construction is almost complete on the site where three building burned down a year ago last October...the day V. arrived in town!
You would never know they hadn't been here all along.
So that was my morning today...how about you?
