Chicago Botanic Garden

June 7th, 2003

We visited the Chicago Botanic Garden today. Don’t let the name fool you – it isn’t in Chicago, but in a north suburb called Glencoe. I can’t believe I never knew about this place before this year. Admission is “free”, you just have to pay for parking, which is $8.75. It’s more than worth it too. There are thousands of gorgeous flowers, over 20 different gardens, several statues, waterfalls, and breath-taking views. I know we’ll be back later this year because we didn’t get to see everything in the two and a half hours we were there. We did get a lot of exercise, though! And of course, photos.

Here’s a few that didn’t make it into the series, but were interesting nonetheless.

#1 – Big fish at the surface
#2 – Bunch of little fish swimming around
#3 – Large bell tower
#4 – Japanese statue
#5 – The wedding party
#6 – Peaking through the “window”

    bahh, I can’t believe I didn’t go there when I lived in Chicago!

    Lovely shots, as usual. :)

    Great pictures! I haven’t been to our botanical gardens lately, although I have been wanting to. A couple weeks ago I was in Memphis and I really wanted to go – no such luck. And what a beautiful place to have a wedding!
