Some of Summer’s outdoor enjoyment are the gardens of flowering colors and shapes and smells. Lincoln Park explodes this time of year with a bounty of gardens not to be missed! Here is just one small sample of summer perrenials found in Lincoln Park.
Scrolling through some summer-created images I noticed the similar shaped flowers of the Petunia and the Bindweed. Sometimes nature (and/or God) designs complete originals and sometimes it copies parts of it’s other creations.
Sharing here just some of the MANY lighthouses decorating Michigan Avenue this summer. These were made to highlight special needs persons and to showcase their gifts of talents. Enjoy and come see! All images copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg
Those that have read my blog for a while know that Snowball flowers are one of my favorite since childhood. In my garden I had a Snowball Shrub (Viburnum plicatum). The Snowballs I observe in abundance now are Snowball Hydrangea (Handrangea arborescens), a shrub with a lower profile and native to the United States of unlike the Viburnum species. Thier intricate, delicate, complicated design is truly the work of higher being.
These giant, graceful Orchids were in full bloom next to Grant Park’s Buckingham Fountain in Chicago. A must see!
