Saturday Snapshot is hosted by Alyce at At Home with Books. To participate, post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.
This week, I made a stop at one of my favorite local spots, Plum Creek Park. The park was a great place to hang out in spring and fall, but almost unbearable in summer. The creek was wide, shallow and sluggish — perfect mosquito breeding grounds. They hung over the water in clouds in the hot months. Last year, with one of the stimulus grants, they narrowed and deepened the creek bed, adding natural plantings (instead of the plain mowed grass) and really made it lovely. The creek is too fast for mosquitoes now and I can’t wait to see it this summer. Finally! My tax dollars at work.
You can just see some of the park buildings in the background. This looks like it’s out in the woods, but it is actually just off a busy street in Kent. There is traffic along the road right behind me as I took this picture.
Isn’t that a pretty, meandering path?
I am so ready for Spring at the local park!
