Morton Arboretum New Year’s Day

The sky was clear, but the temperature was cold. We decided to take several short walks in Morton Arboretum, late afternoon on New Year’s Day. As the sun lowered, the oak leaves turned gold and the colors on Lake Marmo, which was ice covered, offered reflections and colors. It was a great way to start 2020!

December Sunset

The sky was like a watercolor painting, with soft hues and colors. The clouds were sparse, but lovely. They looked a bit like popcorn in places. As the bright orange sun set, the colors and drama deepened. These were taken at Herrick Lake Forest Preserve.

Redbud Petals on my Garden Path

Redbuds on my garden path
Drop petals on the ground
The beauty, color of them all
Makes joy in my heart abound!

The pretty red/magenta color is scattered all over my garden path today. I loved seeing the magenta along side the spring green trillium!

Bikes on the Rhine River

When I travel to Europe, I love the bikes. Every color, style. Parked on narrow streets. Not locked. Here’s a short video of a few bikes I saw when on a river cruise on the Rhine River last month.

I used Adobe Spark to make this video. I’m still learning how to use it, so I may edit this when I figure out a few thing!
