Calming moment of closeness…

Some Chicago neighborhoods are host to turn-of-the-century town homes. Many have established gardens, possibly of similar age, at least the perennials appear to belong to the established homes. This image was taken in Wicker Park neighborhood, which though rich with condominiums still had several blocks of stately town home mansions on generous sized lots.

The cautioning black iron fence surrounding one property was softened with this vine bursting with feathery white blooms. Closer views show the delicate beauty of the flowers. White on white with tender shades of green lend for a calming moment of focus during an otherwise city walk.
