Gorgeous weather today, even a bit too hot and humid. I took advantage of the rare sunshine to take photos of the spring flowers and budding leaves. I missed the cherry tree blossoms on Park Place--they were in their glory last week--but here are sample shots of how Waterbury was looking today.
First up, my weeping cherry tree:
The view on Walnut Street.

Not a sign of spring, but too cool to ignore. Awesome hood ornament on a car parked in front of City Hall today:

Now for some shots at Chase Park. While I was there, a man asked if I was taking photos to show how the park needs upgrades--meanwhile, I was thinking it would be nice if there were a park like this on top of Long Hill.
West Main Street. During the summer, I wish these little trees were big enough to provide shade. Right now, though, they are showing their merits.
And finally, some little flowers in the lawn of the BPO Elks Club on West Main Street:
