About Linda Schaub

This is my first blog and I enjoy writing each and every post immensely. I started a walking regimen in 2011 and decided to create a blog as a means of memorializing the people, places and things I see on my daily walks. I have always enjoyed people watching, and so my blog is peppered with folks I meet, or reflections of characters I have known through the years. Often something piques my interest, or evokes a pleasant memory from my memory bank, so this becomes a “slice o’ life” blog post that day. I respect and appreciate nature and my interaction with Mother Nature’s gifts is also a common theme. Sometimes the most-ordinary items become fodder for points to ponder over and touch upon. My career has been in the legal field and I have been a legal secretary for four decades, primarily working in downtown Detroit, and now working from my home. I graduated from Wayne State University with a degree in print journalism in 1978, though I’ve never worked in that field. I like to think this blog is the writer in me finally emerging!! Walking and writing have met and shaken hands and the creative juices are flowing once again in Walkin’, Writin’, Wit & Whimsy – hope you think so too. - Linda Schaub

  1. Tiger lilies are one of John’s favorites. Yours are gorgeous.

      I like Tiger Lilies as they are so hardy … they take a lickin’ and keep on tickin’ like the Timex commercial says. I wish I could claim them as my own Tiger Lilies, but they are from the Blumrosen Memorial Rose Garden at Memorial Park. It is tended by volunteers and there are four raised garden beds with mixed perennials. At one time, there were mostly roses planted in honor of Mrs. Ruth Blumrosen who was President of the Detroit Rose Society for almost 40 years. I remember when it was only roses … it was just gorgeous. I keep bopping over there, hoping for butterfly shot on the Lantana, but no such luck.

    Beautiful photos of beautiful flowers. I sigh here because we can’t grow them. The deer eat them like candy.

      • I’m impressed with the varieties you can see in them. One of my friends had a dark scarlet with white tips version. Enjoy the beauty you see – it’ll all be white before we know it. 😉

        Yes, they were quite spectacular and I thought more salmon-colored than orange. They are in this volunteer garden and I went over there and the clouds rolled in, but took pictures anyway When I saw them, I figured they weren’t too vibrant, so returned. They are dependent on Mother Nature for the rain, so they’ve been lucky this year. Yep, snow is coming and yesterday the one meteorologist said that it’s looking like a La Nina Winter (lots of precip), BUT, we had a La Nina Winter predicted last year and it didn’t happen. Winter – ugh!

      • Overcast in the brighter parts of the day provide for more clear photos. It’s amazing how resilient flowers can be. And us humans too – we keep persevering through the winters (or move LOL!) We’ve got fall to look forward to!

        You and I love Fall … the sweatshirts, a chill in the air, the leaves, even the smells – the whole season is magical to us. I am ready for Fall – we have more severe weather tomorrow afternoon and I’m so done with Summer and its volatile weather this year. As a “weather worrier” I’m sure I’ve lost a year off my life from the Summer of 2021.

      You’re right Yvette – the bright-orange Tiger Lilies sure brighten up this garden which is tended to by volunteers. There are four raised garden beds. Originally it was just two garden beds, just roses, planted to honor a late Lincoln Park resident, Mrs. Ruth Blumrosen, who was head of the Detroit Rose Society for four decades. [You know, it’s funny … I said I would bypass the sunflower growing project this year as we were in moderate drought status and expected to remain so the entire Summer. Now, the rain won’t stop, with rain, often torrential, since mid-June. We’ve had 15+ inches of rain, from June 15th to July 15th and had rain several days this week and are expecting storms, possibly severe, later today. Those sunflowers would have rivaled Jack’s beanstalk by now had I planted those seeds/a plant!]
