An evening walk.

It's nice to make it to the end of what was a grueling week here in Madison, Wisconsin, but let's step outside for a little walk. There is beauty just outside my door. Within three blocks of home:

Well, that's a lovely thought, Maxine!

Beautiful pics, Ann. Especially the third one, of the eaves of the house with that great tree in the background.

Happy spring to you.

Mertensis virginica -- one of my favorite Spring Flowers. Thanks!

Oh how I love spring and the apple blossoms, when suitors come calling, inviting you to go strolling about.

Nothing better than having a delightful chaperone/escort taking you on a walk.

All is right with the world.

Peace, Maxnie

How true. How very true.

. . . and elsewhere.

I have seen it.

I wonder if the tree was there when Louis Sullivan designed the house.

Ann Althouse said...

MadisonMan: I think it was. Trees like that are over 100 years old, I would guess. Maybe over 200 years. I don't quite get what Sullivan had in mind with those protruberances.

Are you waxing nostalgic about your soon-to-be-former neighborhood? This might be the last spring at University Heights.

Someone has a lot of weeding to do. Leave the dead tree. The woodpeckers need it. Forget the "suitors come calling" crap and that psuedo-victorian pretentious "strolling about" bull. Have a great Spring!
