These tulips grow right across the street from a school. It's amazing they still look beautiful; that is, in one piece. I do not expect very much from adults with regard to respect for public property, and even less of children. Good to see evidence of respectful humans.
When I took a picture of the purple flowers beside Loop (coffee shop), I wondered if they were lavender - even though they aren't even close to being in season. I've never really looked at lavender in person to be able to identify their petals and leaves. I have a pouch of dried lavender flowers for cooking, but they look like light purple rye seeds so they don't really help me identify petals.
Looking up purple flowers online, there are quite a few purple flowering plants. Even though the leaves don't look quite right, are these meadow sage plants? I wonder if Loop reused their coffee grounds to grow these?
