That's a lovely park! The person sitting in the first photo is totally dwarfed, those trees are huge!

The flowering trees are out, causing me to think about fishing. I hope you are doing well.

Pretty pictures Sylvia! I would love to stand under that tree "umbrella".

How fortunate you are to have such a park nearby. And spring has flowered in all its glory! Lovely photographs. I'm especially fond of the last one ... looks like the people are being blessed by the tree...

Have a wonderful week ahead!

It's comforting to know it is coming. We're -10 C. today.

Beautiful park -- and that is the result of all that Oregon rain isn't it! I am glad for the Spring Days you have now!

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
