Yesterday was cool and sunny here in the Chicago area. I took a refreshing and rejuvenating walk through one of my favorite parks, Cantigny in Wheaton, Illinois. Spring has definitely sprung there. I hope these photos, including the one above of Lenten roses, brighten your day.
Looks like it’s already time to cut the grass!
Redbuds are a sure sign of spring.
Tulips are just beginning to open.
Daffidols always look happy to me.
Bright, sunny, yellow tulips are in abundance.
This garden has a regal feel.
This photo of the archway with the flowering trees ahead is one of my favorites.
Doesn’t this garden look like something you’d find on palace grounds?
I wouldn’t have planted orange and red together, but the color combination is beautiful.
Magnoli flowers blossom before we see the tree’s leaves.
Sometimes, the most striking photo can be of one single item.
