Most of my Saturday mornings find me at
a swimming practice. However, not only was the site
of this week's practice changed to a more distant location,
bus service to my neighborhood was suspended
because of the annual "Mini."
It is a half-marathon race, 13.1 miles in length,
that annually has over 30,000 participants,
and winds its way from Downtown to
the Speedway and back.
I took the opportunity to take a long walk,
an activity that I'd neglected because of the miserable
winter weather. It seemed like a chilly day for May,
and the plants looked a little wan, too.
Perhaps they were tired from the effort to germinate
and bud in these cold mornings.
At any rate, as I walked down Lynhurst Drive,
I noticed the sunlight on this flowering tree.
I do love lace and these white flowers looked
as though they'd been embroidered on a base of
black lace provided by the bare
limbs in the background.
