Chicago Botanic, again.

After an impressive 189th place in the Chicago half-marathon (him) HHB and I went to Chicago Botanic last weekend. As you can see from the picture above, gardens are where I am happiest in the whole world.

I’m so lucky to have had the chance to stop and see one of the finest gardens in the Midwest. I know that I’m boring, although I love the English gardens-always- admittedly, I can’t get enough of hedges lately. What they are made of, how they are trimmed…obsessed.

I think HHB was obsessed with the woman who wrote on all the little chalkboards so incredibly neatly. Everyone needs to have their own thing, I guess. Here are some great photos:

I love this place! (and may God bless HHB for being willing to listen to me show off my botanical Latin for three hours).
