However, on one of those lovely spring days we were allowed, the stars and planets came into alignment! Carl came into town from Santa Fe, I had the day off, and there was sunshine! Hines Park here we come! The lovely hike was followed by a yummy lunch with our friend Barb and my daughter Shelby (yes, I made her skip school so she could see Carl).
Here are some of my photos from that lovely day...

|For some reason this graffiti didn't offend me|

|These next two pictures were pretty exciting for me as I had never seen a jack-in-the-pulpit in the wild!|
|This plant starts life male. After 2 years, or longer in poor soil, it turns female, flowers and bears seed. If the plant receives a shock, it may turn back male again. Isn't that crazy?!|
