Spring has been exploding here, and it’s making it harder and harder to be housebound. I’ve been wanting to go to the garden for weeks, but I wasn’t all that thrilled at the idea of having someone push me around it in a wheelchair. Then we got our new membership cards (an annual birthday tradition from M’s parents) in the mail, and I remembered they came with lots of free passes for the tram. That seemed like a stellar idea for looking around, so we headed over there around lunch time.
I switched lenses on the camera and did my best to capture a few photos of the blooming masses from a great distance and a moving vehicle. There were blurry ones, of course, and more than a few with lots of people in them, but there were several that looked like I was standing right over them, leisurely strolling through the place on my own two feet under a canopy of magnolia blossoms that stretched from one end of the garden to the other.
