Buoyant beauties…

Before roses wake up for their summer display at the Chicago Botanic Garden, Peony blooms welcome springtime with their bright fragrant colors. My Peonies bloom in several see-from-my-window perennial beds.

These beauties were rain soaked adding to drama of the scene. The blooms are heavy, so along with their own mass the added raindrops insured the bloom’s relaxed statue.

March is still winter…

Thought I’d look at my March images from last winter/spring so that I could share some more colorful, spring-like images. Well, there was snow on the ground then too. But only enough to coat the ground and still allow plant remnants to poke through. And look, the dormant shrubby remains have foggy water drops….no frozen snow.
