Also going on this past weekend was the Tulip Festival in Albany ---and though we drove through the area, the weather was less than cooperative on the one day that we had free time to “DO STUFF”, meaning Saturday afternoon after my lecture was over. That was the day that the rain came in BUCKETS!
If you look close at these tulips..they are JUST ABOUT done….and on the ground around them are all the blossom petals that were pounded to the ground during that down pour.
On my walk….I felt like I was walking on a blossom carpet…the trees were so pretty, but even that pretty can come to a halt when the rain does its damage.
These trees were still VERY PINK though!
And bees were humming their happy bee sound doing what bees do best!
Look at the grass! The blossom carpet looks like snow!
As I walked I stopped to admire churches – like this one, quite gothic in all its majesty.
And this one…spires reaching toward the sky.
And this one, with windows reminding me of a “Cathedral Window” quilt pattern ---
I loved the architectural detail of these wall pieces on a building that is now apartments.
Old rambling houses, the pride of a by-gone era have always been a favorite. I love old houses!
This one captured my heart every time we drove by it. The hubby was out working in his yard after the rain, laying mulch. That’s another spring smell that I love…wood chips and ground cover. SPRING!
I want this one, too!! Isn’t it magnificent?
What about this brick beauty with all its angles and eaves?
I love that round detail on the upper porch. It draws your eye right to the person who would be standing there.
It wasn’t long before I was back to the covered entrance of the Queensbury Hotel.
Oh, if these walls could talk! Can you hear the 1930s music playing in the lobby? They actually DO have that 1930s music piped in..it adds so much to the atmosphere!
Thanks again, Glens Falls for the warm embracing welcome and the extra fun time, come rain come shine! Let’s do it again, shall we??
And tomorrow….I’m off on a new adventure! I’m flying to Chicago to meet with the Quilters in Ottawa and St Charles! We’ve got special things planned to occupy my time….these girls know what I like! Bring on the antique quilt browsing..and yes…there WILL BE PHOTOS!
