It's dreary here today in Chicagoland... it snowed this morning -- and now the temps are hovering just above freezing, making for some nice muddy slush -- not a good thing to run my dog through... Anyway -- your image brings color and freshness to my day -- thanks... I am a bit distracted by the white blobby thingy in the upper center/rightish... makes me wonder if there was someone standing in the background with a t-shirt on...

Love these last two posts. Spring is in full bloom here: cherry, plum and peach trees line the streets and the odd magnolia can be found as well.

This was taken inside a greenhouse. The white area is probably a window.

Everything looks better big and this photo is no exception. At a big size the white is less of a distraction and you can really see the detail in the parts of the flower that is sharply focussed.

It's going to be a long while yet before we see blossoms on the trees! It snowed last night.

Wow! The apparent depth of this shot is quite extraordinary.
