Flowers and a Tear Down

Hullo!!! Ooohhh... what happened here?? Hmmm... can you see the snowdrops?

Ah... that's better... I am out to document some more spring flowers!






I found a little patch of violets!! Aren't they cute. I wonder if they would transplant into our garden??

It would be nice to have a carpet of violets in the back yard...

 And.... of course... the first dandelions are out!! That means spring is definitely here.

On another, sadder note... do you remember the post I did in October last year of a beary old school?? Well...

They are tearing it down!!! The outside stairs have been removed and there are fences and stuff everywhere...

Poor old school. So sad that no one could do something with it. The school board chairman said “We need to get rid of that building, it’s full of contaminants, we need to deal with that." Sigh... so sad. I'm sure there's asbestos and goodness knows what else in there.

It would be nice to have a peak inside while they are ripping stuff out but they say it's not safe for the public to enter. Sigh... bye bye old school!

  1. It doesn't feel like spring over here though...

  2. Is that where the expression "old-school" came from?...

  3. "Flowers?" grumble, grumble.

    It's too bad they couldn't save the old school. It might have made a wonderful retirement home for stuffies.

    1. It would have but I'm guessing there was mould and asbestos in there too... too expensive to be remediated or something.

  4. Spring is in full bloom here as well. Sorry Jerry. I was hoping the old school would be a lodging house for stuffies or headquarters for the stuffy tv network. Sigh.

    1. It would have been such a beary good idea. They'll probably tear it down and build post-modern condos on it or something.
