My friend and I went to the library a week or so ago. It was only about a mile away, she said, so we could just walk there. So we left, on our journey to the library. It turned out to be longer than we thought, closer to two miles, so we walked for about forty-five minutes to an hour. The best part was when we passed a rotating sprinkler. My friend saw her opportunity, and ran across. I foolishly followed her, and the sprinkler hit me in the ear. She laughed at me for a long while.
We arrived there, and the two bookworms were in heaven. I wanted to get a library card, but I didn't have an ID card. I have applied for one at the DMV, though, so when it arrives, I'm going to check out that interesting book I found and started reading, along with about a billion others I'm sure to discover when I explore further.
There was a garden outside the library, which my friend wanted me to see. It had tons of roses, her favorite flower, so she was happy. And it smelled wonderful, too. I had brought my camera, so I proceeded to take over a hundred photos. (I'm not even kidding.) I was playing with the camera settings, seeking the perfect picture to do justice to the awesomeness. My friend got bored waiting for me, and sought refuge on her phone.
|I love the rich purple on these flowers.|
|Follow the yellow brick road...|
|Now you can be a 'Wizard of Oz' character!|
|If your kid is a monster, why not go all the way and have them pose behind this?|
|I switched to the macro lens setting for some of the close-up, detailed photos.|
|A sandbox shaped like a wooden boat.|
|The inside of the sandbox.|
|Here's a second sandbox.|
|I love the pretty yellow and yellow-orange flowers in the garden, too.|
|I took a few shots before I finally got one in focus. The wind kept rocking the branches, resulting in blurry smears of blossoms.|
|The butterfly is just a decoration, not a real one. For a moment, I thought it was an actual butterfly, and got so excited...|
|These huge pink flowers are so cool.|
|Did I mention there were a lot of roses?|
|Multi-colored roses. They have such an interesting look to them.|
If anyone wants to help identify these plants so I can better describe them (because I'm so terrific at it), let me know in the comments.
