Unexpected…

The perennial Aster blooms in the Autumn. These Asters were spotted blooming this spring in a Chicago planter. Totally unexpected find. The portrait pose was natural; all I need to do was move to capture their arrangement. Nature’s compositions are always my favorite. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

Pretty Petunia…

This is a common plant for window boxes and planters at outdoor dining venues in Chicago. Always beloved Petunia; sometimes over-planted but always selected to brighten the scene.

Planted here, contrasting with red Begonias this Petunia’s trumpet shape is captivates many an insect. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

The more traditional view of Petunias show their colors that seem to radiate from their inner core.. A common, traditional favorite. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg
