Though here and there…

…a late Daffodil blooms…

Late Daffodil

…the first week of June has brought the first of Summer’s beauty!

The first Hosta blossoms I've come across

A Hosta stalk, its blossoms still hidden

This Hosta stalk has made a bit more progress

Wednesday evening, though it had begun to rain, I took a short walk to a nearby courtyard I had never entered and found these beauties among a wide variety of other Flora:

Pale Pink Roses

Deeper Pink Roses

Salmon-colored Roses

They’re all a bit late in blooming, due to a cold and somewhat wet, cloudy Spring…but it’s only two more weeks until Summer officially begins, at 12:04 AM (CDT) on the 21st of June–the Summer Solstice…and perhaps our Chicago weather will warm up some before then?!?

  1. Lovely – Absolutely beautiful pix – takes me on a spiritual journey, just wish I could smell their fragrances … 🙂

      • hmmm .. if only we could transport smells along with the visuals – boy would that be cool…

      • Ah, I’ve thought of that happening, too, Bob! It would be cooler-than-cool! Then again, modern technology comes up with a lot…but I think the fact that you took notice here, and the memory of these smells took over in your brain…hmmm, that’s a great achievement…more than any computer in the world could accomplish!

      • didn’t even think of it that way . Thanks for helping me notice that my brain created those memories. Wow – I feel like I’m in Philosophical Friday … 🙂 seriously though – I do love your work – keep posting. 🙂

      • You’re quite welcome, Bob Lee! Though I live in Chicago, the city of corruption, murder and daily numerous shootings, I prefer to find and post the beauty I see along the paths I walk, and I’m very pleased when my own emotions get noticed, and trigger a memory for someone sensitive to these things (such as you). As long as the camera and computer work, and the poor eyes keep seeing, I shall post the glories of the world as I see it!

      • And I will encourage you to do so since it has left such a positive impact on me. 🙂

  2. Gorgeous. Gorgeous. Gorgeous. I needed this break. And I agree!! Who needs Smell-o-Vision. Your photography does the trick! B. (I think the daffodil is my favorite. Mellow Yellow!!)
