Blossoms and new growth. 

The shades of pink against the green backdrop caught my eye. The tiny green branch shoots drew me in.

Duck Diving-05165Duck DivingDiving for food in Washington Park

This pair of ducks were on a mission for food. 

The one as a lookout while the other would dive for food, wiggling it's feet to keep vertical while combing the shallow pond for tasty morsels in the mud below. 

I love the ripples of the water and the contrast between the white ducks and dark water. 

Pastel Spring

Pastel Spring-05173Pastel SpringFlowers in Washington Park

My first post here of 2017. 

Apt that it's a Spring flower photograph. 

I have new eyes to see with. The past year, I've struggled with what turned out to be fast growing cataracts. As of last week, I now have replacement lenses implanted in both eyes. I'm still getting used to being able to see without glasses for all but up close reading. I'm very grateful for the skilled surgeon and medical support staff. 

So here are some pastel flowers from Washington Park in Springfield, Illinois. Enjoy! I know I did and hope to keep enjoying my view of the world for many years to come.
