Blooming Despite the News #WordlessWednesday

Well, it's official.

As of last night, we have one confirmed case of COVID-19 in our community, and 70 pending results of testing.  (If you know how hard it's been for many to get tested in our country, 70 pending results is a bit scary, I will admit.)  Several local supermarkets are opening to seniors for the first hour of their opening.  Some banks are drive through only.

No unnecessary travel, many local buildings closed, all senior centers closed, local hospitals are working together, asking people to use virtual walk ins.

I am still working from my office but this may change in the very near future - fortunately my job can be done remotely but I think of first responders, supermarket employees, sanitation workers, and others.

The City of Binghamton, New York, where I work, is on a nightly curfew as of last night.

So, what can you do, but take a walk in the fresh air (as long as we are permitted to) during the day, and watch spring unfold?

Which is exactly what my spouse and I did.  Spouse took these pictures because my back was acting up - not bad at all for a beginning photographer.   I love this one especially, with the shadows.

Flowers - so welcome, to maintain our mental health.  We are reminded that nature will persevere somehow, with us or without us.  We must try what we can do to limit our stress.

  1. The flowers are lovely and a moment to appreciate their beauty amongst so much mayhem.

  2. WOW! Binghamton is on curfew? WOWOW! No curfew here in Hornell, yet. EVERYTHING is closed except Walmart, Wegmans, Aldi and Tractor Supply. They close by 8 pm though. It's sad, truly it is. We have I think 1 unconfirmed case, awaiting test results.

  3. This is happening around the world. We can only do what we can do. Caution abounds.

    Spring flowers are the most beautiful of all flowers.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. ♥

  4. The flowers are lovely. Your spouse did well.

  5. Those are so precious! Very nice photography.

  6. Fresh air and sunshine is good for what ails you.

  7. At least it's warming up. Good to get out so as to not get cabin fever. Glad there are tests to be had. Better to know who has it. It's harder when anyone might.

  8. AHHHHH No greater words have ever been spoken. Stay home put your feet up and watch Spring roll in! Woo Hoo We're watching some old movies. Everyone has DVD's at home. Put your feet up and use that money you spent on your DVD's and watch all your favorite movies! We're doing jigsaw puzzles and playing games too! Have a great day & stay healthy!

  9. Great shots nice to see them growing good.
