On a recent trip to Elgin IL, I stayed at a hotel off the interstate. Behind it was an industrial park. It was the perfect place for a run in the early morning - no traffic! Surprisingly, there was a stretch of road surrounded by grassy lawns and beautiful flowering trees. I could hardly wait to get back to the hotel to fetch my camera. This photo was taken on Saturday morning. By Monday morning, all of the petals were gone. Talk about being in the right place at the right time!!
