Flowers of Summer…

…in the parkway at the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Emil Bach House.

I feel fortunate to have found anything growing at the Emil Bach House this year, due to the extensive, on-going renovation of Wright’s 1915 design.

I’ll have only several more posts with images from the Bach House grounds, as no maintenance is being done on its marvelous flower beds.

Ah, well…next year promises to be superb!

Though here and there…

…a late Daffodil blooms…

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

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

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?!?
