Want a "Quickie" ? Today 7.17.16

(All “Quickies” are photos taken and posted the same day)
These photos were taken this afternoon, just minutes ago here on the shores of Lake Michigan at the Gardens at Waters East. - - 7.17.16
So many blooms, views of the changing lake – from wind and rain this morning to sunny this afternoon, colors everywhere.
