Do You Appreciate The Beauty Around You?

I love summer mornings and last Thursday, it was finally pretty warm when I went to work like it should be for July! It was such a pretty morning that I got off the bus a few stops early and took a 15-minute walk up Euclid Avenue to work in downtown Cleveland, taking pictures along the way of some sites I see just about every day only this time, I took my time and appreciated my surroundings. Among the things I saw were beautiful flowers, the Soldiers and Sailors monument, pretty blue sky, the Terminal Tower which at one time used to be the tallest building around, a double bus that I finally got a picture of, some sidewalk art, a fish pond with a little water fall and beautiful flowers. Enjoy the pictures in this slide show.

What are you surrounded by every day that you just take for granted?

It's so pretty where you work! I especially like the little waterfall.

I learned many years ago to always stop and smell the roses. I take nothing for granted. I think that comes with age though. It did for me anyway.

Have a terrific day. :)

Your city is beautiful. I thought the flowers by your office were gorgeous.
What a wonderful slide show.

Daisy: There's a big gold fish in there too that I tried taking a picture of but it came out so blury you couldn't even tell what it was. Just looked like an orange blob! LOL! I'm still getting used to my new camera and tried the slow flowing water, but don't think I pressed the button down just halfway to focus it. I read the instructions later and found out about that little step! I'll try again some time. I'm on vacation now though the rest of this week and all next so the fish will just have to wait until after vacation.

Sandee: Yes, I agree with you. As we get older we appreciate things more it seems.

Mountain Woman: First time I ever heard anyone outside of Cleveland saying our city is beautiful. It certainly has some beautiful things. Too bad those aren't highlighted more in the media. Glad you enjoyed my little slide show!
