The largest steam engine ever made visits St. Paul before heading to Duluth. It drew crowds all along its journey. The only time I got a look at it without people standing in front of it is when I happened to be riding my bike along Shepard road the night the train arrived at the union depot.
The leaves look like the leaves on a spider plant. The flowers are blue or purple. One of my favorite plants.
I grow these or maybe I should say they grow themselves in my Yard. I associate them with the start of Summer because they tend to start blooming around the middle of June. There are so many things blooming right now that you might start to notice a theme on my photo blog. 🙂
Dressed up for the grand opening of Rice Park – a must have for every Instagramer.
I often use my bike when I go out to get pictures. It is much faster than walking and allows me to get into places that are hard to drive to or where parking is scarce.
The picture was taken in the newly renovated Rice Park in downtown St. Paul.
Marcie and Woodstock reading in the newly renovated Rice Park. They used to be located on the East side of the park facing the St. Paul hotel but are now on the South side facing the St. Paul Central Libary. The building in the background is the Landmark Center.
The park just re-opened after being closed for a year for renovations Many local events are held in Rice Park including Winter Carnival events.
