Today’s walk in misty showers

Days like today are supremely enjoyable…warm and Spring-like before noon!

After two days of thunderstorms, this morning there was a medium fog and wet streets…the perfect time to photograph, as the colors are deeper.

In the parkway in front of the Emil Bach House, I found these dead Hosta…in strangely captivating, ‘returning-to-earth’ tones.

They brought to mind Miss Havisham and her wedding cake in Dickens’ “Great Expectations”.

A very gray day, indeed…within an hour of returning, the temperature dropped and it began snowing–TWO seasons in one day!

Well…that’s Chicago!
