These flowers had caught my eye this morning on my way to work.
Especially this red one...
A field of dreams on such a dreary day
This sunflower had a surprise when I got closer to it. Tons of tiny yellow ladybug looking bugs were crawling all over it, like they belong there as part of the flower.
How amazing and colorful nature is!
My friend is in Rio de Janeiro, and sent this photo from the botanical gardens.
It's a gift from Mexico to Brasil.
The Botanical Gardens is 200 years old this year. It looks like an amazing place.
Skirt 34 is for Oscar who celebrated a birthday yesterday too. Incidentally, I think 34 may be the high in Chicago today, or is it 43?
