These are hard to miss because everything around them is still brown. I found these on the sunny south side on an alley on a strip of dirt along a retaining wall. They are small but hard to miss.
Snow looks best when it is fresh and even better when viewed in the summer in a photo. This is one of the views from the steps of the MN state capitol building.
A lot of work has been done to restore the dome in the State capitol building. It used to have chipped paint and plaster. Today it is absolutely gorgeous with vibrant paint and shiny gold. The Minnesota state Capitol building was designed by Cass Gilbert.
We have had some nice weather and I took advantage of it. This is what was left of the West Publishing building on Kellogg as seen from Shepard Road.
I have taken this picture many times, including last summer. This one is a little different because of the clouds. The building is in Como Park and was built in 1914 – 1915 ish and is on the register of historic places. It is beautiful inside and out.
I grow these at home during the holidays. I photographed these at Como Conservatory.
