May 2018 – week 21

Welcome and thank you for joining me on this year’s project of taking/posting photos every day.

This week’s weather can only be described as perfect late spring weather – warm, sunny with only a few morning or night-time showers.

Now onto this week’s photos:

May 20 – beautiful Alt Stadt of Dresden; still on vacation here in Dresden…this is a view of the Alt Stadt (Old Town) as seen from the park. I love seeing all the steeples, statues and baroque style buildings everywhere you turn.

May 21 – Hauptstrasse (Main Street); we walked this street often to do some shopping, find a cafe for the all important ‘kaffee & kuchen’ (coffee & cake) in the afternoon, or find a restaurant for dinner.  This is a gorgeous thoroughfare…no cars, a wide cobblestone path in the centre, sprinkled here and there with benches, fountains & statues. Lots of trees for shade; a wide sidewalk on either side in front of local businesses like shops, cafes, bakeries, restaurants.  You saw lots of families walking, children playing, young & old strolling or going about their business, bicycles and pedestrians had lots of room to manoeuvre.  It was such an inviting place and most neighbourhoods had at least one street like this. Cars travel well planned streets that wove around these areas…we could really use areas like this in all our urban cities and towns.

May 22 – images I love from my last day in Dresden; all vacations come to an end…here are a few of my favourite photos. Blooming flower boxes are everywhere; churches and steeples everywhere you turn; statues showing great pride in their history; and a little red Vespa!

May 23 – Dresden International Airport departure lounge; I couldn’t believe how calm and orderly this airport was…this shot was taken about 20 minutes before departing on the first leg of our journey home.

May 24 – Home Sweet Home; traveling is great, but it’s always so good to be home.  I am glad to see the lilacs blooming, as I thought I may have missed this fleeting time.  The air is sweet with their scent.

May 25 – Lilies of the Valley; another spring flower that I just love.  Pretty, delicate blossoms that also fill the air with a sweet scent!

May 26 – woodland flowers; I really love all the little flowers that just appear in the spring…these violets & woodruff just burst into bloom this week.  So tiny, so delicate, and so pretty.
