Our World Tuesday: A mix of shots and places

Thursday morning before the rain poured down, a friend and I went for a walk at Shelley Lake in Raleigh, NC.

On Friday, the sun came out and I photographed a finch bathing on my deck.
Later that same day I had to go to Durham NC for work.
I took a bunch of pictures in Grace Garden as well as some facing the Durham Farmer's Market Pavilion and Park.
I love the sculpture that is in front of the pavilion.
I like the variety of seats in Grace Garden.
The red table and seats are in the park across the street from the garden.
Back in the garden is another sculpture I like.
The shadows were very strong when facing the sculpture in another direction.
The last shot I took Sunday night. We finally got a little snow after the first winter in a long time without any. I've missed not having any snow this winter and this is better than none at all.

What a mixture of weather - spring-like and then snow!

Wonderful mixed bag of shots.

Awww … those little frosted daffodils pictured in your header make me think of frosted lemonade. All such pretty captures, Carver, from the animated winging birds and unique benches to the magical snow scene at night!

Such a terrific collection of shots for the day, Carver! Wonderful variety from spring-like to very wintery! I do love the last one even if it does look COLD! The park looks like a great place to walk! Have a great week!

You definitely got around this week. I too like the sculptures and inviting benches at the park.

Thank goodness for some snow somewhere this winter.

Love the finch bathing on your deck. What an interesting walk!! I guess Europe has gotten all the snow this winter!

What a wonderful action shot of the flying gulls. The finch is priceless! I think that snow should have come to CO!

I like the sculpture too. Great pictures.

That is the most snow I've seen since October! These are beautiful. Your part of the state is very lovely.

Oh, I love your bird photos :-)

Love the garden and the interesting sculpture and seats. The snow shots are great too, but that House Finch having a bath is a wonderful capture, it's my favorite.
