June 2020 was a month of continued Covid-19 restrictions, finding ways to keep pleasantly occupied, and the appreciation of nature.

There were flowers that bloomed, on campus…

…and off, in nature preserves we visited to get away for a few hours.

I had fun modifying some of my flower photos with a software called SnapSeed!

There has also been wildlife to watch on campus, mainly birds.

Scenes in forest preserves:

Because Illinois has begun to lift restrictions a little, we are now allowed to gather in small groups, so I got together with three friends as well as with our daughter & son-in-law. Most special was to be able to play with our grandcats again! Our kids are currently renting our house, and planning to buy it next year; meanwhile, they’re making changes to suit their tastes!

And, of course, there’s no place like home, with our cat Hazel, and our family members with “Covid hair”!
