I sat in the sculpture garden by the AI a couple times yesterday. Both time I saw multiple people walk through and stop to take a photo of the tulips. It was always the same batch of tulips; not the ones across the sidewalk or to the left, but the same tulips. Eventually I decided to take a photo too. I didn't have my camera, so I used my phone.

Different topic... When I stepped off the bus earlier this evening, there was an old man sitting on the bench at the bus stop. He had tufts of white hair around the top of his head, but I couldn't see his face as he was staring at the sidewalk. He looked as I remember my great grandpa looking. Beside him was one of those huge glass jugs of cheap wine that I've seen at the grocery for around ten bucks. It was half empty. It was beautiful in this weird, distant way.

I really wanted my camera, but didn't feel right going inside to get and it coming back out.
