Spring finally arrived here in Old Town Warrenton. Truth be told, I think Summer is here. I think we hit the low 90s today.
Weather in the Virginia Piedmont may be even more fickle than in Maryland!
Really, though, it was gorgeous. I couldn’t NOT go outside. So I grabbed my real camera for a change, as opposed to the iPhone, and went for a stroll.
I so enjoyed seeing all of the flowers. It was just lovely… looking, strolling, snapping a pic or two. Us photographer types are afflicted with a curse that really makes us SEE stuff. Colors, lines, shadows, oddities… the phrase seeing the big picture doesn’t apply. We see everything.
I’ll just let these pics — there are lots — speak for themselves.
Note… that thermometer says 100! It’s in the sun, but that proves how warm it got today.
Can I just say I am really glad I have friends who are storekeepers that aren’t afraid to run their air conditioner? Thanks, Sherrie, Janet, and Kelly Ann!
And hats off to the Red Truck Bakery, which is where I bought a drink today and very tasty Birdseed Cookie (sugar cookie with poppy seeds, anise, fennel, and some other stuff). Of course, I had seeds stuck in my teeth afterward, but it was worth it!
It just LOOKS like a perfect day for a stroll, doesn’t it?
Those flowers are so vibrant, they sort of hurt my eyes!
Did you enjoy your virtual stroll through my lovely little town?
I captured some pics at twilight, too. I’ll share them in the next post.
