Spring/Summer Commute

The park that I walk through each day in Kaunas looks a lot different than it did a few months ago.  In addition to green foliage, the various monuments are much more visible without the mounds of snow.  The Kaunas equivalent of the parks service did quite a bit of pruning in the early spring when these photos were taken.  The park benches are always filled with kids hanging out, courting couples, friends chatting and groups of guys drinking beer.

This interesting metal sculpture honors the mothers of those who died fighting for Lithuania's independence


I assume that this monument is something related to interwar Lithuania since it was taken down in 1958 and reconstructed in 1994.
