Rainy Sunday Stroll!

I was reading Friday Fragments last week and came across Unknown Mami's blog. She does a feature called Sundays In My City. The idea is to get out and share something about the place where you live.

So, I decided to take a walk this morning... in the rain.

First off, we have a pretty common sight- the bike paths!

I wandered past this garden near a church and one of their planters was a bathtub. I thought that was pretty fantastic.

It was nice to see some pops of color on such a grey day.

Here are some of the houses and buildings along the way.

I love the colorful brick on this one!

I loved all the flowers on this person's balcony.

Of course, after I got home it stopped raining and the sun came out, but it's a more interesting story if I can tell you that I managed to take all these shots while standing under my umbrella.

You can check out the rest of my photoset on my flickr HERE.

So beautiful! Thank you for sharing. I have a thing for bathtubs as planters. I think they look great.

Nice photos! Lots of different types of familiar Dutch architecture. Wow, I am impressed you took those under your camera, I have yet to figure out how to do that properly/without looking horribly awkward! I love this new series, especially since Sunday mornings are always so empty here in Amsterdam, it would be nice to walk around snapping pictures.

Those are beautiful for shots taken while under an umbrella! Great job! I am not coordinated enough to take pics and keep myself dry at the same time! LOL

It makes me almost feel like I am back visiting the NL!
Such a wonderful place :)
I wish more places in Minneapolis looked as nice

Thank you so much for sharing
