Our weather forecasters say we’re three inches behind in rain levels for this fall season. So the constant drizzle the other morning was welcome in spite of our planned six mile walk beginning at South Pond in Lincoln Park, Chicago. As the weather cleared a bit we came upon this gorgeous Hydrangea with one last new bloom. I enjoy both them all, even the fading ones.

This Bumble Bee is waiting out the cool drizzle on this atypical 63-degree (F) August afternoon. Wrapped tightly around the Joe Pye Weed stem, it rests until the sun shines and wings are once again dry.
