STROLLING THE BOULEVARD


It was another glorious weekend.... and just in time for Earth Day. Since Daddy Warbucks got into town Friday evening, we decided to go into Philly to spend time outdoors, enjoying what Mother Nature has given us on Saturday. Maybe the cold weather mix up was no accident...the trees and Fairmount Park were more vibrant and stunning then I've seen.

Then there was this..... click the Parc Brasserie. to lick your chops over the menus.
 Since the lovely Parc is located at Rittenhouse Square Park....any restaurant using a squirrel in their marketing and food, like the cookie garnishing my ice cream, I can get behind!!!! I think my Bouvier would approve!!! Although I felt guilty eating it.

 HAPPY EARTH DAY!

  2. Mistress....such a stunning day!!! And that food is making me feel quite ravenous right now. Philadelphia is one city that really comes to life in the spring.

    I'm just glad it finally arrived.

    1. Roller blading is HUGE in Fairmount Park. Some do the whole length along Kelly Drive, which must be at least 8-9 miles long. The park itself consists of more than 9,200 acres of trails, woodlands and wetlands, not to mention people also roller blade in the mansion areas, but you see it all over the city really.

  7. Captures the spring essence for sure! You sure know how to make one for homesick for a city they once lived.

  8. I love the squirrel theme at Parc!!! I have been there on trips to Philly...OMG!!!

    In our community today, we are cleaning and revitalizing a ailing park. With no funds available, everyone was asked to volunteer time and bring flowers and small bushes to plant flower beds. A local nursery is donating trees to plant. It's been a huge success and turn out, for this quaint little sad park. But after today it will be a beautiful spot again.

  10. A lovely post. Fairmount Park and the Art District is very stunning in the spring, and one of my favorite areas of the city period. We were jus over to take flowers to a dear friend buried in Laurel Hill....and it looked spectacular as you can imagine. I don't know how I feel about that big electric plug, but it does say something being Earth Day I suppose?

    And Parc!!!! Don't get me started. That place is phenomenal anytime time of the day.

  14. That was a wonderful post, as per usual! A beautiful city!

    We are a greatly blessed people and we should be teaching this stuff in schools. We take too much forgranted and need to enjoy the beauty of this Earth. Not slowly kill her.

  16. Cleveland has an outdoor sculpture of a huge stamp (not the kind you mail, but dip in ink) with the word "Free" at the end. I immediately thought of it when I saw that giant plug. Who knows? Maybe they're by the same artist!

    1. It's an unusual piece. Not sure about the stamp , but the artist of the plug is Claes Oldenburg.

    2. Same artist!!! His specialty is giant sculptures of everyday items.

  18. Abby does not approve of the squirrel!! But thinks the rest of your day was fun and appreciates all the loverly pictures. :-)

  19. Very pretty blues and blossoms. Now about that last picture, I'm not going to say what I thought that was. My second thought was a Mickey Mouse cutout with a mangled ear. I didn't see a squirrel until I read what it was. Don't get me started on what I was seeing when I looked at the ice cream. It still doesn't look like ice cream to me. Yes, I have been totally corrupted.

  20. Time for spring to be here and there, glad you had a chance to get out and enjoy it.

  21. Our city should pay you for all this free publicity!!!

    The city is certainly alive today for Earth Day. Don'y gt me started on Parc. When me and my gay peeps go in for dinner, we are in there for like 4 hours sometimes. I also don't live far, so I get take out at least once a week.

    And I wonder why my ass is the size of a VW Bettle.

  25. The green lungs of Philadelphia. Great pictures. Today was one of those days that inspired me to play my all in concert today. I love spring.

  26. Fairmount Park is so stunning and I'm guessing a lovely reprieve from the city! That drive in alone the river is one of my memories of visiting there.
