Maggie Daley Park

A new garden opened recently in Millennium Park.  It's named for Maggie Daley.  The garden is part of the Maggie Daley 20 acre park which is free and open to the public.  There are plenty of activities in the park for children and adults.  Great place to visit!

Chi Town

We're back in Chicago for a few days.  The weather is glorious - so many sights to see. Later this week we will catch up with our family - the main reason we are in town.

Art Swap

I signed up for an art swap.  I can hardly wait to see whose work I get - always so much fun!

Something has been eating away at the ginger plants outside my door.  The plant is beautiful just the same.

For the birds...

My Sunday morning  beach walk was glorious.  It was dark when I arrived but by the time I was half way back to my car the sun was coming up.

Original photo taken with i-phone5 (birds added in PSE).

Bumper Stickers

I'm not one to place bumper stickers on my car.  I get a kick out people who do though.  The owner of this car has quite a collection!

Original photo taken with i-phone5.  BuzSim filter added for fun.
