In the country

Picnics are encouraged.

A small building, a car, a lamp, the trees.

Two pictures from the village of Tivoli, New York, small town living at its finest.

Then a large modern science building on the campus of Bard College in the Hudson River Valley.

Inside is outside.
And the dogwoods are in bloom.

I found this tree, where the flowers bloom from the sides of the leaves. I had never seen this before. It seemed like an alien life form. It was creepy, but I guess it's not atypical of how certain trees or bushes send forth blossoms.

This is what the whole strangely blooming bush looks like - very normal, until you get close-up. What is it?

Then, also, in the country you can run across arrangements like those below.
