What a lovely weekend at the Chicago Botanical Gardens. Everything smells wonderful, the air is so fresh. It is such a nice alternative to polluted city air. My fiance and I love nature and our little inside joke is that we use that term to describe everything. When there is a caterpillar on the path, I scream "Don't step on nature!"
A happy little purple martin pair at the colony.
Pretty forget-me-nots. They are really tiny, this shot was taken with a macro lens about an inch away.
I stumbled across this print on Etsy, and I was like "Wow!" This lovely design is by artist Afsaneh, of Joojoo. Check out her blog too. She makes cute polymer figurines, but Afsaneh, you need to get into those watercolors more often, this is wonderful!
