“They” said it would clear by early afternoon.  “They” were wrong…again!

Just two weeks ago, I posted these lovely tulips on State Street, here in the Chicago Loop:

Today, they looked like this:

And like this:

So, I walked over to the Art Institute, hoping to spend the afternoon indoors, but today was not a free day (it’s the end of the month for me, and 5 color ink cartridges cost almost $92, which ate into my ‘extras for fun’ account).  I spent some time in the gift shop, admiring overpriced objects mostly ‘Made in China’, then retired to the garden.

Oh!  Pansies!  How I love pansies!

There is more to come from the Art Institute…just am too tired to run everything through Photoshop (TM) tonight!

  1. Flowers need rain as we all do.
    Oh, how temporal these flowers are –
    here today, gone tomorrow; like us…

    So lovely images that remind us too,
    of our transience on earth.

    Thanks my friend!
