There wasn’t much time to Pull Up A Seat at the Chicago Botanic Garden yesterday. There was just so much to see and photograph, but there were a couple of benches that caught my eye because of the colorful flowers nearby. It was a gorgeous day (a rare treat in what has been an extremely rainy month) so I felt like I needed to make the most of it. Lots more flower pictures to come in future posts.
………more showers but also May flowers. Despite moaning about the miserable weather we’ve experienced so far this spring in the Chicago area, I have to admit that our garden has never looked so lush and vibrant. Many of the plants that I thought might not do as well this year, for one reason or another, have really pulled out all the stops, especially the iris.
The peonies never disappoint and somehow the frequent downpours of rain only seem to make them smell all the sweeter.
In fact, everything in the garden is thriving, from tulips to allium and the Japanese anemone. A feast for all the senses and a promise of things to come in the summer.
And always lurking in the background, my arch nemesis, the rabbit, looking the picture of innocence. One false move, rabbit, and you’re for the high jump!
