Spring in St. Stephen's Green 2

It's still Spring in Dublin!  My awesomer half and I walked through St. Stephens Green on Saturday afternoon.  Gosh, Grafton Street sure was busy!  If anything, it was just refreshing to take a break from the hustle & bustle of town.  The park is still making a great show of its tulips.  The weather was very accommodating yesterday; it was sunny with large lumpy clouds floating about.  Teenagers gathered in groups on the park lawns and couples walked hand in hand.  It was a really nice day.

This tree was in bloom and was covered with tiny white flowers.  I have no idea what type of tree this is.  St. Stephens Green has over 750 trees planted.

New spring growth.

Suddenly a wild child appears!  The exact moment I snapped the shutter, this child leapt over the stairs here.  haha I had no idea she was there.

The Office of Public Works does a fantastic job with planting and landscaping the park.  Aren't these tulips great?

Closeup of the purple tulips.  The tiger stripes cool.  Thank you Holland.

We had to wait like 5 minutes while a group of Japanese school girls took pictures of each other in front of this flower urn.  I guess everyone likes flowers.  :)
