Sunday in the Park with … Danny

Minnehaha Falls is one of the most popular parks in Minneapolis. It’s so busy in the summer that I usually avoid it, but I had to see my frozen waterfall thawed. It had to be marvelous right now if someone would actually take a kayak over it.

It was a beautiful morning, Danny and I took our time. We enjoyed the trees:

These shrubs that look like they are covered with stars:

The wildflowers blooming:

This Catbird gave us a private concert, he knew a lot of songs:

I wondered if this Song Sparrow felt like he had the world to himself:

My favorite park statue had me thinking about The Song of Hiawatha by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow:

hiawatha
Hand in hand they went together, Through the woodland and the meadow….

And then I wondered what would compel a person to take a kayak over this?

To say that The Falls are raging right now would be an understatement:

It’s no wonder this park is one of our most popular with sights like these:
