Julie

A week ago Hartford had a two-day heat wave, the first one this spring.  Julie came over to Elizabeth Park after work to get some sun and to relax for a while in a peaceful, quiet, pretty setting.  She found a bench in the sun below the gazebo in the rose garden.  When asked if I could take her picture, Julie said "Sure."

The rose garden is pretty bare now.  We won't really see much growth until May.  Roses are in peak bloom in June.  You will see Elizabeth Park often in the coming months.  I don't know if you will see Julie again.

My knock out roses in Jackson are blooming already. And my traditional roses are in full leaf with plenty of blossoms just waiting to pop! Maybe you should move down here to the south for more rose time. :)

PS: Sorry to hear that Ohio State lost. Couldn't believe it! Would have made for a fun playoff between KU and OS.

A wonderful portrait of a beautiful woman! This posting totally reminds me of one we'd see on Steffe's CDP blog....

She is a babe dressed for success.

As soon as I saw the pic I thought that Steffe would be proud of you! Sandals - can hardly wait!

Julie is pretty and it would be lovely to see her again, but I can't wait for roses:)

Great shot of a beautiful lady. It was nice of her to let you take her photo. I bet that place is beautiful when it's in bloom. We're almost there.

A bright spot in an area that's waiting for spring to get into full gear to add more colour to the landscape.

You have EYES for more than composition, light and colors!
Great photo.
We have just got MORE snow this morning.... So looking at the woman in the park, well I do "envy" her now, she who can sit there without thick winter clothes:)

Leif's comment made me laugh because that was the first thing I thought of too. Parks and sunny days...good combination. She's rockin that dress and looks like a nice place to chill out for a bit. I like your Elizabeth Park pictures, looking forward to more.
