It's been a crazy few days-- lots of social engagements and the usual volunteer commitments have meant very little time at home. So here's a post I thought I'd have up early last week! We've made many trips to the Chicago Botanic Garden in summer, spring, and winter, and it's always been beautiful. Although I hoped for more colorful foliage, autumn was also lovely there. I thought I'd share some of my favorite views.
I loved the layers of greens and the hanging pinecones.
In addition to the beautiful grounds and garden displays, they have a marvelous collection of bonsais. I'd never seen one with berries before.
The flowers on this bonsai were lovely.
And this zinnia was stunning:
I saved three photos for tomorrow's Take Three Thursday post, so I'll be back again quickly.
