Good Company

My neighbor has this sweet, lovely and very well trained parakeet.  I will often see her wandering through the neighborhood with the bird perched on her shoulder.

Sometimes she chats and other times they just walk together in comfortable silence.  She never seems flustered, even when there are dogs or children near by.

She Made a New Friend

The other day as many of our neighbors were working on a community garden, my husband made a new friend. She settled in on his shoulder and was quite content to observe the activity from her perch.  

While she is very social and will typically go from person to person, on this day she decided Andy was her guy nestling up close to him and moving away from others who extended a hand for her to step on too. 

Pink Flowers

Sure, all the pastel colors are associated with this season, but to me, pink is the color of spring. 

Purple Face

I know it is silly, but as I zoomed in on this flower, I got the distinct impression it was looking back at me and scowling.

Spiky Beauty

These spiky flowers filled the boxes outside one of the banks downtown. They brought the right mix of color and attitude.

A Little Bit of Paradise

Not at home in Indiana
Art and Bloom at Newfields presents spectacular flowers you would not normally see anywhere in Indiana. This collection reminds me of Hawaii.

While the temperature outside is gloomy, the colors indoor are bright and sunny

Color for a Grey Winter day

This little red pop of color, nestled along side a fence gave me the perfect excuse to pause, catch my breath and take a photo.

Last Bit of Summer Color

I know it is finally fall when the berries on the Flowering Crab Trees turn from brown to red. 

Flowers are Art

To compliment the new Monet Lume exhibit the gardens are filled with flowers similar to what you would see in his home garden at Giverney.
