The Friends of Elizabeth Park hold an annual sale of spring bulbs -- hyacinths, daffodils, tulips and the like -- to help pay for the park's plantings. The City of Hartford and Town of West Hartford pay for the park's basic maintenance, but the extensive plantings and improvements are funded by the Friends, who also volunteer to plant and weed the flower beds.
I walked over to the park on Friday to check out the inventory. The greenhouses were locked, so I could only look from the outside. The greenhouses were full of gorgeous potted flowers in full bloom; it is too early for any spring bulbs to bloom outside. By the time I returned around noon on Saturday to go inside, most of the flower pots were gone. This is always a very successful fundraiser.
I am seeing a lot of spring bulb macro shots. Just one flower. They are pretty but I like scenes. Isn't it interesting how different people's minds and eyes and tastes are?
