What beautiful spring weather we had here in Annapolis yesterday that featured clear blue skies and pleasant breezes. I for one spent part of my day out on the water but also made time to take in another aspect of Mother Nature’s handiwork on land as well. While out on a midday walk in the Historic District I was treated to the recently developed foliage and colorful flowers along the way.
Here are a few of the photographs taken on my walk so come along with me now and enjoy the beautiful scenery.
What would spring be without the vivid colors of the Azaleas bushes? One can find these colorful low growing bushes throughout the city however I especially enjoy seeing them in the front yards of our more stately looking residences. Too bad that their flowers last for such a short period of time.
The pin shaped green leaves of this Japanese Maple Tree stood out even against the backdrop of such a well manicured lawn and surrounding trees.
The pink and white petals of these flowers appear so delicate.
Trees continue to bloom in the front yard of this Annapolis residence.
Hanging baskets, pots set on the porch and even occasional flower boxes were visible from the sidewalks as Annapolitans spruced up the outside of their homes for Spring.
Accents of lavender decorate the roof line of a front porch on one of my favorite Victorian style residences in the city.
Colorful blossoms on a cherry tree take in the midday sun as a faint breezes stir them ever so slightly.
I hope that you have enjoyed our walk among the flowers and trees in Maryland's Capital City on the Chesapeake Bay,
