Easter Morning Walk

It's Easter, but we still haven't got much of a Spring going here as yet; the trees are still bare, the grass is still brown, and not much is blooming but some brave early blooms of the Narcissus family. Today was sorta chilly, and I came in from my walk when it started up with a cold rain. It's still raining.

Still, I wandered out looking for things that would catch my eye. I went up to Spring Hill Cemetery, then wandered back to King St. and wandered for a bit in the area behind King St. These things caught my eye (and you can view them as a web album or slide show here): some brave Daffodils blooming along W. King St.; two views of South Mountain from the cemetery; the graves of two young sons of the unfortunate Moses and Margaret Cope, one aged 6 years and the other 17; an old wrought iron fence by the library on W. King; an old mill converted to apartments along Branch Creek on W. King; and the window sign on the Longhorn Country Dance Club on N. Fayette St. I hope you find these sights as interesting as I did.

  1. A nice variety of photos, there. :) I thought at first that those two children died at the same time...maybe a childhood disease or something, but they were quiet a few years apart!

    No daffodils yet for us, but probably this week they will bloom!

  2. The patina on that fence would do justice to a fine piece of sculpture. And I suppose the fact that we can see tghat the grass is still brown is an improvement on things over recent weeks - it is no longer (fully) hidden by the snow.

  3.
