Mr. Big and I went back to the park on Easter Sunday so I could take more photos. I love the park on major holidays like this. Families start setting up their spot to picnic before 7 a.m., when I arrived. Blankets, chairs, chaise longues, huge coolers full of food, tables, grills, tents--this year, everybody had a tent. They eat and play and talk and laugh--a wonderful way to celebrate the holiday. One family already had staked out what I'd consider the prime spot: between the rose garden and duck pond.
Many of my rose photos did not come out well. My camera is just a small point and shoot, and I have new contact lenses with a stronger bifocal, and my eyes have not adjusted to them yet. Between these two, fuzziness rules the days right now. I'm not sure why blogger insists on turning the horizontal photos during the upload process, but I've loaded, deleted and reloaded photos so many times, I'm giving up. Turn your head sideways to view some photos.
