Thank you everyone for your kindness and concern about my fall and resulting injuries...I'm pretty sore, and still cannot see out of my left eye....due to swelling. The cuts are all pulling as the healing progresses. Everything hurts, but I am just taking it one minute at a time. Not sure if I will go to work tomorrow or not....the bruises, etc are pretty shocking to look at. We shall see.
Anyway, here, at last are the first of the photos of my Baltimore trips several weeks ago.
For many years I've been visiting my brother and his family in Baltimore the first weekend in May. We always do some fun touring in delightfully quirky Balti, but I enjoy a warm and beautiful break from the endless winter on Cape Cod. LM and I tearfully parted at the airport, and soon I was floating on a cloud on my way to summer.Within a few minutes the clouds gave way and the scenery was lovely. I had a very clear vie of NYC as we flew south along the west side of the Hudson River, with a very clear view of the city and Central Park.
My SIL, Jenni, greeted me at the airport, and we drove immediately to a great Mexican restaurant to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with some delicious food. After a walk, we were finally at their house and I had a great walk around their garden to take pictures in the glowing late afternoon sun.
Front porch pansies.....
A lovely columbine on the front steps.
Root beer iris....
Pansies that return every year.
Poppies lit by the sun
The flowers are so pretty and the foliage is so different and soft.
Alium were everywhere
I settled in and we caught up on news, and it was early to bed as Friday would be a big day with a lovely tour to LaDew Gardens and lunch at Cafe Hon in Hampden were on tap. I love being with my brother and family so much!!
