Spring commute

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2008

I missed a good portion of things blooming in my absence last week. Many things are in full bloom now, and a few things are shedding petals already. Let me assure you, this town isn’t called Bloomington for no reason. While all of the flowers and flowering trees are very beautiful, my allergies are going crazy right now. Even Claritin can’t help today, it seems.

I took it easy during my ride to work this morning, in part because I can’t breathe too well, and in part to enjoy the scenery. Here are a few photos.


IU actually goes a little overboard with the landscaping at times

We have a lot of these trees with white flowers

    Glad you are back. I got a little concerned the wisdom teeth ordeal had done you in! Nice spring pictures. We won’t see spring blooming like that for another month. Temps in the 30’s and 40’s with rain and snow in the 10 day forecast. Spring comes very late in these northern parts.

    Yeah, the pollen count is a bajillion around here, too. I usually don’t have allergies, but even I’m suffering this year. Someone was telling me that – in our area at least – the weird (read: mild) winter we had has led to many of the flowering plants, shrubs and trees all coming out at the same time instead of being staggered. Ergo, super high pollen count.

    On the nice side, those are some really pretty shots. I tried to take some of Rittenhouse Square in front of my office and they look like … well, like a guy who shouldn’t be taking pictures of flowers took pictures of flowers. If there had just been birds or dragonflies on them…
