Water Flows

Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it. Water is patient. Dripping water wears away a stone. Remember that, my child. Remember you are half water. If you can't go through an obstacle, go around it. Water does.
~ Margaret Atwood

Most of these photos are from a bit earlier in the spring. I am pretty far behind as far as both posting and visiting go. There are lots of photos still in my camera and about which I'm nearly ready to blog. Time, however, has a way of getting in the way. So for now, there's this. I hope you enjoy.

rainy window pane
A lot of this..

hazy sun
... and not very much of this...

... has made for a significant amount of this.

Holiday Inn Patio
The flooding has receded greatly over the past week or so but this is what the patio at the lakeside Holiday Inn looked like just a couple of weeks back.

underwater path
This footpath, which appears to end here ordinarily takes you all the way to that opposite shore with plenty of grassy area to the right - when it's not hidden under water.

water tulips
The path is located between the mooring docks and these amazing water tulips.

This is the sign on a nearby street which tells you that you're approaching a dead end. In this case, it was just a little too late.

new growth
Not everything suffered from the rain. It provided much needed hydration for trees in bloom.

ginger ale tulips
Flowers everywhere were at their finest. These tulips in a pop bottle caught my eye.

weeping willow catkins
The catkins of the weeping willow soon gave way to full, sweeping boughs.

spring green
And the virginal green of spring was everywhere.

I hope your spring is blooming beautifully!

More photos coming up before too much longer.
