Taking a breather in the barn.
Cultures in the Garden
In this image, one group of people pass another group of a different culture as they head out for a photo shoot of this lovely woman in the beautiful dress. Just like a garden of a variety of different, beautiful flowers, our earth is filled with beautiful cultures of different people. Celebrate diversity. :)
"Onion Flower" globes showing the rest of the blooms who's boss. ;) One of these years, I'm planting these beauties!
Huh? Who's There?
Curious goats peaking out of their shelter on a rural farm.
This tiny little flower knew exactly which direction the sun was in and was drinking up all the rays. Even the tiniest of blooms are amazingly beautiful.

First Grade Ahead
My beautiful granddaughter is now a first grader and always a favorite wonder to photograph. Her favorite activities is reading books and moving across the monkey bars. Here, she takes a moment to reflect on a family celebration of a cousin graduating from high school She still 12 years away from that, but time will fly by.
Art & Nature Mix
Half claypot-like pieces stacked in perfect alignment make a beautiful screen in the gardens.
Iron Meets Brick
It's not just the flowers and trees that are stunning at the Chicago Botanic Gardens. Abstract art is frequently found as well, if one can look past the heavenly botany scenes.
Tea & Croissants
These steps lead to the English Garden at the Chicago Botanic Gardens. Ladies with hats, beautiful hedges, and of course, amazing flowers, beg for you to stay and participate in the English indulgence of some tea and croissants.
Mommy and Me
A candid shot of my granddaughter, Charlotte, giving her mommy her handmade Mother's Day card. Nothing means more to a parent then the authenticity of a child's love. :D
