Taken in the Moorings community garden in September 2021
Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this past week has been about circles and wheels. Here is my contribution.
Pumpkins are not necessarily round, but their shape is generally thought of as spherical – some are and some aren’t! I just liked this display of pumpkins outside a Mariano’s supermarket.
And a pinwheel!
Circular centers of flowers
Ice on a circular pot…
…and decorative bowls.
In bloom at the Moorings community gardens
Cee ends her color series for her Fun Foto Challenge this week, with the color blue.
Taken on July 19 in the Moorings Community Gardens for
Cee’s FOTD 8/2/21
A gallery of sunflowers from the Moorings community gardens!
There are also lovely patches of black eyed susans around campus that brighten my day during my walks.
Another community garden flower: a bright yellow zinnia.
These tree photos were all taken at Chicago Botanic Gardens or Morton Arboretum. I found these trees to be amazing or astonishing, due to their shape or special characteristics. My contribution today for Becky’s July Squares: Trees.

I planted this huechera (or hukera) plant last year, my first year with a garden here at the Moorings. I like the color of the leaves on this perennial. Heucheras come in many colors. The flowers are very tiny (called coral bells), and I have found it easier to concentrate on the leaves. I took this after watering one day in June.
Zooming out a little to see the whole plant
July is the month of Becky’s new challenge #TreeSquare, day 5.
This tree photo was taken on May 21 at Chicago Botanic Gardens, near the Japanese garden.
