It was a cold, gray day in Bishop Hill this Sunday, but never has there been so much color brightening its northeast corner!
Meanwhile, next door at Outsider Gallery, the colorful spectacle continued inside. A school of snake gourds hanging from the rafters greeted guests.
Outsider Gallery will be open during some Bishop Hill special events throughout the season. Please watch the Bishop Hill calendar for dates and check Facebook for details. If you would like to schedule a visit, email Steve or call 309-371-0775 for an appointment.

It was quiet this morning when I walked around town. There were very few folks out and about. The sky was gray and the clouds were low. But spring has taken hold and everywhere I looked I saw the promise of beautiful summer blooms. I'm getting acquainted with a new camera and, as I walked, I snapped a few photos along the way to share with you here because I think you'll agree...
...Bishop Hill is so lovely in soft, early light!

|Every garden sports an ornament or two|
|Spring tulips giving way to summer herbs|
|Containers overflow with blooms|
|A herd of straw goats guards the Poppy Barn|
|Garden ornaments galore!|
