The Arboretum is in full-scale nothing-held-back Flower Mode ! My favorite section to walk is the prairie and right now, that prairie is such a color riot that your eyeballs vibrate for half an hour after you leave the area.

 I don’t know this flower’s proper name, but I always think of her as a fairy ballerina. I returned to the Arboretum after dinner tonight just to catch her and her sisters mid-dance.

    Gee …. song titles for your photos … now where have I seen that idea before? 🙂

    Though, at least your son is planting decent songs in your brain — not my favorite Elton song, but, better than many of his 80s tunes… 🙂

    P.S. lovely photos … and nary a decaying building in sight…..

    I always thought I was the only one who thought Elton was singing about Tony Danza. 🙂
