Chicago Botanic Gardens 2013


We visited these amazing gardens on our way home from Ryan's wedding. 






I wanted Amy to see how this was done.



Hanging gardens over the entry to the gardens proper.



The children and a friend. :)





I took this one for you Clark. You will want to go here fully equipped for a year and a day...they sailed away....










                         A yellow garden inside one of the English walled garden.



 



A whole hillside of wonderful flowers.


                    The clock that chimes the hour just like a grandfather clock.



 In the Japanese gardens we found our native trees turned into bonsai. Frances thought it felt like walking into a story book.





                                               This, I took for Amy's sake.
