Flowers and Birch Trees at the Chicago Botanic

Birch Trees in Spring 2010 at Chicago Botanic Garden
These Narcissus flowers were in bloom under the birch trees at the Chicago Botanic Garden when I went there on May 3, 2010. 

The flowers where also in bloom when I visited a week earlier, and I took several pictures, but at that time I couldn't find an angle I liked that didn't show the brick building these trees are next to, or the edge of a path or fountain.  When I went back and the flowers were still in bloom, I walked around for several minutes working to find an angle that didn't show any walls or paths.  I like this image much better.
