Explore Outdoors ~ Flowers in the City

 I had the opportunity to visit Boston a couple weeks ago, and as I walked around (it is a city built for walking!) I noticed all the flowers. Blossoms of every color, shape, size... tucked into small gardens in front of apartments and lining the walkways of parks.

What do flowers add to your neighborhood? Color? Texture? A source of pollen and nectar for pollinators? Seeds for birds? Check out the flowers you see in your neighborhood gardens and parks this week. Take a close-up portrait of your favorite one. Or paint a picture, write an ode, or just enjoy its beauty for a few moments.
