Prairie splendor…

The vibrant purple Aster draws attention in this golden prairie sea of drying grasses and blooming Goldenrod. This was taken at Chicago’s Northerly Island restored prairie. This end of season scene seems to defy the feeling of the “end” of fair-weather times that the MIdwestern autumn often signals.  Copyright 2017 Pamela Breitberg

Color blocking…

Enjoy these tulips at the Chicago Botanic Gardens. I did! Different moods and energy are created by different color combinations, including the energizing current color blocking trend of the bright purple, orange and green. The monochromatic field of pastel pinks is calming, while the cluster of varying shades of corals add a little more energy reminding me of the energy needed to bring forth these beautiful fields of color.
