Five Miles Walked at Meijer Gardens Today ~ 5/19/17

It's been a few weeks since I've been here but I found a few tulips still blooming, these with golden ragwort,
and one hanging on with the Iris.
The tulip tree flowers were spent.
But I found these beauties still in their glory.
Some of the new, delicate flowers just called out for macro treatment.
Orange is my least favorite color but this rhododendron was striking.
But not as striking as this Horse Chestnut Tree. The blossoms are incredible!
Jack in the Pulpits and Lady Slippers have popped up.
The cherry blossoms may be gone but there are plenty of things to make up for their absence in the Japanese Garden.
All of the sculptures have already been photographed by me, many multiple times in different seasons, and today I just took details from one of them. Only frequent garden walkers will know to which it belongs :-)
You never know what you'll find ~ it's a pineapple!
And that? That's just a 'fool on the hill' :-)

Urban Walk ~ 4/28/17

Finding something new in my corner of the world is always a pleasure. And today's urban walk showed me plenty: murals and sculptures and graduates, oh my; plus the always favorite Blue Bridge, and spinning pinwheels at St Mark's.
Here's to exploring what's right in front of you.
