It was so beautiful today that I just couldn't stay inside. So I took my camera (and dog) and headed out to find beautiful things. It wasn't hard. These back-lit leaves really glow. This pic is not manipulated in any way.
The milkweed was ready to fly. When I was little, we would catch the little seeds and make wishes on them.
And dear Skyler had a wonderful time pouncing on critters and terrorizing the geese at the lake. I missed a great picture of him bounding into the water and the geese scattering. I guess I was too busy with the milkweed.
If you are in the Chicago area, I hope you are enjoying the weather this week. We all know what is going to follow shortly!
