How the Spring looks like

To those, who forgot how this wonderful season, most breathtaking time of year looks like, this post is dedicated. There little photos for postcard covers I made in Boston recently, during last week. The best ones are yours. Here are the first dandelions I saw this year (not-to-forget, it was April the twenty-second):
And the very next day I saw those mysterious blue flowers blossom at my neighbor's yard. Does anybody, by the way, know their name?
On Friday I saw a beautiful tulip on the same yard.
When I was photographing it, a neighbor was standing outside talking to embody, and when he saw me he asked if  had a problem. When I said that I was just capturing a tulip, he said that he thought I was taking a picture of trash on his yard. Then he said that he appreciates when somebody likes his flowers (what's obvious, who won't appreciate that on his place!).
And here are some bushes blossom on Saturday:
Much more beautiful landscapes were captured yesterday, and I am very glad to share them with you.

I hope you enjoyed my photos, you can share them with your friends if you want. Please comment on them, your opinion on how to improve this blog is very important to me. Write on what you did and especially what you didn't like. I welcome any suggestions!

Winter's Back?!

This Wednesday brought us all a big and very bad surprise - the snow. Actually the cold weather itself took place during the last couple days - yesterday and today, without a chance to get warmer until next week. Please don't be disappointed by such a words which you read at the very beginning of a post, I can't do anything with that. And since it's so cold in the house and I am going to bed soon, I especially regret about the occasion. Summer lasted for a week, and in the day of Boston Marathon Bombing Anniversary, Mother Nature gave us a generous air with terribly cold air, caused by a Northern cyclone. You will never believe, but yesterday I saw a group of people outside Northeastern University, sitting on the grass field and watching "Toy Story" on a big screen.
Let this encourage you. Believe it or not, it was eight o'clock in the evening when my Biology lecture ended, I left the auditorium, went outside and saw this. Since I, having a T-shirt, a sweater and a good cape, felt frosty and very uncomfortable (that's not the word), I could not believe my eyes.
Today, another picture was waiting for me. Returning home from Maths, I passed Boston common. My experience was simple: Sumer sight with Winter weather. Look at the image in such a warm colors and try to imagine how cold it was there:

However, I can calm you down with a statement that it always goes like this: first the Spring comes, we are all glad, but then the Winter returns and life loses its meaning. But, Summer always comes on time. Don't be disappointed with it! To keep you up, I'll share today's sunset as it was seen from Sunset street (sounds nice, doesn't it?). Stay warm!

Boston Marathon Tragedy - First Anniversary

This day in the middle of April marks a lot of anniversaries, and most of them are pretty sad. Let's begin with the local news: the first anniversary of the bombings during the CXVII Boston Marathon.
