This week, the challenge is "water". I chose to photograph one of my favorite subjects at night for this challenge. Carroll Creek runs through the City of Frederick business district and at times flooded businesses near the creek. The City built a flood control system that carries the overflow water underground from Baker Park to a point near the fair grounds. A linear park was created along the above ground creek, with flowers, fountains, walkways, art work and an outdoor amphitheater. Above, one of the fountains shot with flash, below without flash.
Some of the water plants.

Some of the water plants are blooming. The pole supports the suspension bridge. Below the view east from the bridge.

I went on a search through my files for some memories that had been captured by my camera. I found these fond memories of my surprise 60th birthday party craftily arrange by Marianne. All the kids, grand-kids, brother-in-law and his wife appeared, having traveled from across the USA.

Spring was slow to arrive in our neck of the woods (or suburbia), with the temps dropping back into the 30's (F).
The bleeding hearts bloomed in early April, the finches showed their color and slowly the other bushes bloomed, with the azaleas reach full bloom last week.
(and a few bugs, too)
