Beautiful bloomin' Edmonton

This morning, the puppy and I went for a walk... and did the same walk in reverse this afternoon so I could take pictures (and so we could play together under the blooming crab apple trees). I'm not sure which City of Edmonton employees can take credit for the beauty I find in Strathearn Park, but kudos to the people who planted the gorgeous trees!


Lilac, honeysuckle and ornamental crab...


and this little oasis of three perfectly spaced crab apple trees, surrounded by pines...


looking back from our spot under the furthest tree...


a happy pooch...


someone played a trick... 
this is a single tree, with a few grafted branches of ornamental crab...


back in our neighbourhood -- a neighbour's chokecherry and plum trees...


Brian's ornamental crab...


Bob's ornamental crab (so many different colours!)...


and our street in bloom, one year after the rainy day picture below...



It's good to come home to our own little river of tulips, 
and a big drink of water, right Shadow?


After a long walk, shade feels good on the belly.
