Sunday Morning Perfection

The spring bulbs have started to fade as the garden has taken on a lush green reserved for rainy days in May. There's a perfection that exists in plants this time of year, an ephemeral quality that will soon give way to the stresses of a hot Illinois summer. Rain fell inconspicuously as I walked through my sanctuary this morning, bringing alive a sensual intoxication ripe with the scent of apple, lilac and sandcherry blossoms.

Below are a few of the images I captured on this perfect Sunday morning.


  1. Very nice-- the garden as well as the photos.

  2. As always, beautiful. As you say, the perfection of the moment in spring is ephemeral, but the memory of it lasts. And the photos capture it!

  3. The lushness of your garden at this moment in time jumps off my MacBook screen. Thanks for sharing.
