It’s been a busy, busy week. I walked downtown today, thinking I’d go into the Mission and take more lilac photos. It seems some of the lighter lavender blossoms are beginning to fade, and I want to get every shade safely tucked onto my camera card before they are gone for another season. But, once downtown, I found myself just turning around and heading back home. I was tired, and it was time for a rest, and there was no use pushing myself any further.
I guess that’s why, as I walked back home – the long way – I found these four places so appealing . . . .
The beautiful side gardens of the Windermere Hotel - always in a perfect pattern of shade and sun. The birds love the fountain, and it is probably one of the most photographed gardens on the island.
Is there anything more restful looking than adirondack chairs beside the water. Add lilac trees to that scene, and you have perfection.
The lovely side yard of the Little Stone Church parsonage.
After the bustle of downtown, Cadotte seemed to be calm and quiet, and most of the bikers were locals headed home to the Village. I followed them.
Only two days left for the Lilac Festival, and they will be busy ones. I’m glad I’m home, tucked up on the hill, away from the festivities for the night. Tomorrow I’ll be right back into the thick of it again, but for now . . . a nice bath and my pj’s are calling.
