A Mary Poppins Day

From April 30…Yesterday was a Mary Poppins day. Storms blew through and if your umbrella didn’t take you to the family across the river, it transformed into an ineffective upward parabola with its hoop skirt showing. I needed to feed K’s cats so had no choice but to bluster my way to her apartment, umbrella grasped and facing toward the whirling twirling wind like a jousting lance. But, like Mary Poppins who always saw the bright spot in everything, I am so glad I went out. At my bright spot, it was raining pink petals from the trees and the effect was like walking into fairyland. I missed a perfect photo op (dang) but still managed a few after the tempest. Someone should market a machine that would do this at weddings and such…it was beautiful.

      Thank you. My perfect photo op (that I missed) was during the storm when a person opened their pink umbrella just in front of the line of trees and all of the pink petals were blowing around everywhere…it was so pretty!
