iris heaven

 I've posted some shots of this field before but I had to go back and get some
closeups of these heirloom beauties. Local folks can see them in person and possibly place
an order, one remaining day only - Saturday June 18th - email me for directions

Wish I knew their names I should have copied them down. click on photos and most will enlarge.

Weekend Reflection

First time joining this link and I hope I'm not too late,
Took this today looking for a light gray for the project 64 challenge, but I like it better for the reflection.
This is my #3 son's truck, pretty sharp but notice the little reflection altering ding?

Timberwolf - project 64

Sorry - no wolf shown here. The color this week for project 64 is timberwolf, a soft gray.
Who came up with these color names? Not what I remember when I was young. Oh well,

Our skies have been mostly timberwolfish lately, rain or not the gray has paid off in 
glorious green (we'll have to wait to see if that is a color from the box of 64.)

tree cozy

visiting the Morton Arboretum in the Chicago Suburbs,
we came across this large tree covered base to almost branch ends in a crocheted
cozy. Cute, but who would do this and why?
Answer : Art!! here 

and then there was this one.

Project 64 - Salmon

This weeks color was a tough one, my only option was to search my archives.
there it was, my beautiful Chicago Peace Rose.
This was last year as it has not bloomed yet this spring.
Something to look forward to, don't you think?
