Because of ongoing health problems I missed seeing some of my most favorite things this spring including the daffodils at Morton Arboretum, tulips at Cantigny, spring blossoms at the Chicago Botanic Gardens and the lilacs in Lombard. However, the flowers in our garden provided some consolation. They seem to manage pretty well without too much help from me and hopefully I can get out there before the weeds take over. We’ve had a lot of rain recently and when the sun finally did put in an appearance I managed to get a few shots of some familiar faces.
A colorful display of tulips and some mud-spattered daffodils as well as a few other springtime flowers helped to brighten the day.
A white-crowned sparrow and my arch-nemesis the rabbit also paid us a visit.
