I wonder if even the locals can figure out where this is. I just happened to glance up one day and noticed it. Amazing how a different approach can change a view. Is there a view you love? Try taking a few steps left or right and look again. Or step up on a rock. Or lay down on your back.

Newspaper boxes on the corner are becoming a thing of the past as the Internet becomes more popular.

I hope you're clicking on these photos to enlarge them and better see the details.

No words needed!


Everything is greening up quickly.

This is how most tulips look in Corning today, including mine. They will be opening within a day or two. I counted 25 in my tiny garden. Can't wait to see them!

Can you believe that beautiful green grass?! Already needs cutting all over town.

West Market Street. On the left is Three Birds Restaurant. Years ago it used to be a car dealership and an elevator transported cars to the upper floors for display. In the middle is the old McClintock Hotel and bar. Gone now. On the right, the lower floor housed the Shoe Doctor for many years. Upstairs was an apartment. I lived there for several years. Too noisy with a bar next door and several across the street! Otherwise a great place to live.

Tommy Hilfiger, one of the newer establishments on Market Street.

    Our tulip here in Boise are about over for April. Few people have bloomers for May and June. My forsythia blooms lasted a long time for the cooler nights I believe. The lilacs should be out by now but the nights are to cold. I believe I lost my cherries for this year, but have to wait and see.

    Looking forward to Step-by-step post. Thanks for sharing your photos with Us Kathleen.


    1. All right, Randall, how did you know the first pic was CMOG? Good guess. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

  2. As always I feel like I am right there with you, the photos are so beautiful and vivid in capturing everything :D
