Strolling in the park
Ok, I will "try" to do this post without any sarcasm.
I really did try to walk around this park and take some interesting photos, but it wasn't the best time of day for photography, and it was hot out there!
I don't know what type of desert plant this is, and they were kind of crunchy, so I thought they were dead, but looked kind of interesting anyway. I think they would look nice in an Autumn floral arrangement. I should have picked some, after all there wasn't a sole there today at this
I understand we do have a water shortage here, but the plain dirt and occasional desert plant just doesn't look "park like" to me. I think this might look better if it would have been closer to sunset, maybe I'll try that sometime.
Here's the part where I "strolled."
...and "strolled" some more...
In case you were wondering what the black fence is, it's a Dog Park. Do you have those where you live? Now, I have seen a couple of Dog Parks here that have grass, or at least the last time I was there, they had grass.
At least there's shade, but I thought that dogs liked to run around on grass, not dirt.
I guess the city does try to make the area nice.
They put these cool little designs in some of the sidewalks.
This is a view looking west from the park. My house is up there somewhere, and we get to enjoy some pretty nice sunsets.
I saved the best one for last. I really do like this photo. This might not be my idea of a park, and I didn't see any hydrangeas anywhere, (sorry, there's the sarcasm) but instead of making fun of this park every time we drive by I thought I'd at least take a "stroll" and look for some photo opts.
When they say "the grass isn't always greener on the other side, " I say...
sometimes it is!
Tomorrow is Friday!
I think this is going to be one interesting weekend for me.
See you soon!
