I know enough with the butterflies already. I think this is my last for a while. I took it on a bike ride near Lake Phalen.
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.
This looks more like December than March.
Many St. Paul City parks include water features. Even the parks on the river or on the lakes. The water in the park along the Mississippi River has been turned off for most of the season. Probably because of flooding. It is nice to see it on again.
A temporary art park. It doesn’t get a lot of use in the morning but it shady in the afternoon. It is hard to take it all in but there are blue chairs and flowers.
