Mixed bag - photo spree

Remember how I keep mentioning that I'll post pictures? Well, I've finally gotten off my lazy ass and uploaded and e-mailed and stuff so that I can post pictures. About time, eh? Yeah, I thought so.



Remember how The Boy and I went to the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens for the cherry blossom festival? Well, here's the proof, finally.

It was so beautiful there. It was like we were walking through a cave of flowers. Like the sky was made up of these beautiful pink blossoms. We actually had a really nice time outside in the outdoorsiness of it all; well at least as much as you can get in Brooklyn.
It was downright PACKED, though. Wherever you turned there were huge masses of people trying to enjoy the prettiness. Though if you wandered off away from where the huge tent was for the traditional Japanese dance (show? recital? exposition? no idea - couldn't really see it with all the people in the way) you could enjoy the lilac hills which were in full bloom and smelled AMAZING.
That deserved the all-caps it got, y'all. It was really something.

But here are the cherry blossoms...
So Pretty:
And here are some more as we walked along (please note that blogger is not letting me layout the photos as I would like and is giving be problems making this look nice. Obviously, I'm too dumb for photos):




Pretty bough









Pretty tree







Pretty sky






Pretty, pretty.



Also, we were at the Bayard-Cutting arboretum in April where we saw the daffodils blooming:
Lovely, eh?




And with permission from The Boy, here is just the greatest picture I've ever taken of him. :)




I love this.
There's one of me this close, too, but I'm not dumb enough to put it up.






That's about it.


Oh, and Big Dog says "hi". And also, "where's my treat?"

  • I think Big Dog needs a new home. Send her to my house! I can torment certain people with her. Tormenting not limited to Lucretia. It can also be applied to 'Damian' across the street too.

  • whinger - she is a sweetie, isn't she?
    It's unfortunate that the camera doesn't represent her eye-color very well. She has such stunning hazel eyes, but you can't tell here.

    orelinde - NO! You have cats. they'll just torture my poor, Big Dog. She's sensitive, you know.

    first nations - hi! thanks for stopping by. there were a TON of people there, but how can you blame them. It's sad when the rain ruins all of the flowers, isn't it. ah, well.

  • Awesome photos of the Gardens. Next time I'm in Brooklyn to see my sister I have to go there.

  • shiftclick - Big Dog thanks you.

    kyahgirl - The Boy and his nose feel a little differently about me posting his pic after seeing it here. Is now a little embarrassed. :)

    minijonb - you absolutely do. the cherry blossoms were beautiful and later in the summer, the rose garden is all in bloom. Lovely.
