I took this photo at Chicago Botanic Gardens on May 21. I don’t know the name of either these yellow or the white flowers, but I didn’t notice until I downloaded the photo a single raindrop (or drop of water) peeking out from the yellow flowers!
I took this photo of a hanging basket of pansies at the Chicago Botanic Gardens on May 21, 2021.

We have some terrific groundskeepers here at The Moorings! So, for Cee’s FOTD 6/14/21, I am not focusing on one flower. Here on campus, there are always lots of flowers to photograph! Here are a few, all taken this month. (Click on a photo to see it larger.)
In front of my sister’s house hangs a basket of pink petunias. Petunias are a common annual to display in hanging baskets because of the number and duration of blooms. Also, petunias come in a variety of colors, including striped and dotted.
I took these photos on June 11 using my new Galaxy A51.
This camera has a lot of features that my previous cellphone cameras didn’t have, including the ability to take macros. It was a learning process but I think I’ve mastered it!
