Really, it's because of the crud that saps your imagination in very hot, very humid weather and from having to sleep with the air conditioner running day after day after day.It's been very good for the bugs though. Photos taken in the botanical garden that is the joint effort of the University of Chicago and the City of Chicago Park District along the Midway Plaissance, just across the street from my office building.
