I am visiting my daughter and her family in Washington DC.
A 3 day celebration of her successful defense of her doctoral dissertation. After 7 years of hard work, perseverance and dedication. Including…as she puts it… “producing a human.” My adorable three year old grandson.
Yesterday afternoon…we enjoyed a brief respite at one of her favorite places.
This is the view…bordering the rear parking lot…
…behind Politics and Prose… A bookstore and coffeeshop in one!
We browsed the shelves
Of so many books.
Until time for
Cookies and tea.
With my daughter
The new PhD.
I couldn’t let this week go by without responding to Cee’s challenge – since practicing with my new camera/macro lens is on my (fun!) to-do list.
And, oh by the way, I love taking pictures.
Since I prefer to photograph flowers in even light, today’s overcast skies were the perfect setting. All good…except for the impending rain and thunderstorms forecast on my trusty (or not so trusty) weather app.
We have a “landscape committee” in our condo association – and despite their committee drama – they do a nice job with flower choices and placement. At least I think so. Not everybody does…hence the drama.
Today’s walk was a quick one – as raindrops interrupted my planned much-longer photo excursion around the neighborhood – but this is what I came up with…
First stop: A hanging planter bursting with pink flowers. Not sure of the name.
Second stop: Day lilies planted down a small hill next to the road.
Third stop: Yellow flowers caught my eye as the rain started…
