Coral Bells

I know this blog is technically supposed to depict "Pewaukee" - but after working full-time all day, and then having to walk the dog, I haven't had much to time to just drive around and "snap" the scenery as much as I'd like. The long Midwest winter makes us especially happy to see signs of blooming life & so that's mainly what I find during my long walks on the back roads, in the parks, and around the yard.

These coral bells are perennials with long pink and red stems of flowers that attract butterflies and hummingbirds. (The cat likes to park under a nearby shrub and nearly 15, she's just too lazy and unmotivated to make an attack.) I took these shots in the evening, hence the flash illumination.
