spring : sights



Over the weekend I spent a bit of time wandering through the conservatory in Lincoln Park for a photo session.  The flowers were beautifully blooming in the elevated greenhouse temperatures - quite a welcome escape from our recent weather.  Chicago has been flooded after a few days of non-stop rain leaving many with flooded basements, the absence of hot water or heat, and impassable roads to drive on.  We're lucky we weren't affected other than having to re-route ourselves on the commute to work, but many others weren't as fortunate.  Sending lots of positive thoughts to those that are still struggling to clean up after last week's storms.  We are ready for sunshine.

  1. Sending some sunshine your way Kate!

    We had a gorgeous Autumn day today and we spent it on the beach with the rolling waves... We had two rainy days here and rushed out today to embrace the suns rays!

  7. I love these changes in seasons, so much anticipation after long months of cold days, or, in our case, heat waves. I love how nature reflects these changes so divinely. Sending warm dry thoughts your way!
