And then, it stopped.
The sky and the river were blue again.
Today, I decided to photograph my day's adventure, to share my bright, colorful, springtime world with you.
In the morning, I walked to the beauty parlor. It is about three miles from my house. I noticed that the trees were flowering and that the lilacs had started to open. I saw flowers everywhere. The gardens were an explosion of color... yellow, purple, red, green. The flowers and the leaves were delicate and soft.
There was a crew working replacing pipes along the road, which was a good thing because the nonstop rainfall resulted in numerous flooded basements. A flagman was there with a huge stop sign/slow down sign. I asked him what the crew was doing, and he pointed out the large pipes that were being installed. That was pretty exciting because, well, flooded basements are excitement best left unexperienced.
As I walked to the beauty parlor, I took random pictures of flowers, trees, Woods Creek, and other things. Some of the pictures are for my 52-week photography project.
My hairdresser Jacquie styled my hair so I can look human... um... good when I have my two minutes of fame at the dance recital. At the beauty parlor, my hairdresser took my picture. There are people in the background, photo bombing (a potential new career option for me).

My next visit was to the Niagara Frontier Publications. It was a busy beehive of activity. So there wasn't much time to chat. After that, I returned to the Island Ship Center, where my greeting cards were produced by Seema Mojowalla, who is the Queen of Awesome. She and her husband Fahim are the co-owners of the Island Ship Center. He is the King of Awesome. They call the Island Ship Center the Spa of Shipping.
|What time is it? It's time|
to visit the King and Queen

Island Ship Center.
After I collected my cards, I went home, relishing the spring weather. I hope that you also had a colorful, enjoyable day.
