Sprink has Spruck in Old Northeast

Museum's tulip tree is glorious.... below, daffodils on the grounds of the Steven's Home.

Life is tenacious.... blooms on the bluffs.

Above, forsythia at the base of craggy point. Below folks enjoying North Terrace Lake... which is stocked by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.

Redbuds are poppin, turtles are sunnin'.

Corinthian Spring



Another post of pix up by the "Museum." In this case I'm showing two different color spaces... Corinthian Hall is shown in the Adobe RGB color space which is closer to natural and has more gradations of color. The red bud which is due west of the building is shown in the sRGB... a microsoft creation for web and other uses. The latter is certainly more colorful and saturated... but too much for my taste.

The Colonnade at Sunset














Constructed in 1908 the Colonnade in the Northeast part of Kansas City completed the grand design of George Kessler for North Terrace Park and the Concourse. One can enjoy a lovely view of Cliff Drive below and the east bottoms off in the distance. There is most always a breeze/wind there which makes it comfortable in summer and heck on hair in portraits.

Recovery





Every year I worry about my Japanese Maple leaves making too early an appearance. The rain Saturday froze on the buds and, I hope, helped protect them. Still frozen early this morning. The forsythia I don't worry about... they're hardier.. and the little redbuds? Well... they just never seem to learn.
