Fall in a Garden

Here are the rest of the pictures I said I'd post after visiting the Chicago Botanic Garden fiber arts show last week.  This popular garden is one of my favorite places to walk. Walking around the neighborhood with the dog is fine once in awhile but I get so tired of it. It makes such a difference to drive somewhere and then walk in more pleasant surroundings. It takes a little longer but I find I'm more likely to do it more often. 


Which way should I go? I chose Evening Island.















Ornamental cabbage


Near the waterfall




Outside the English walled garden



The leaves will be gone before you know it and soon I'll have to bundle up a little more. But I'm ready. Have a great week. Take a nice walk outside before the weather gets too cold.

Thanks for the memories. I remember going to a quilt show there when I lived in Chicagoland. I also remember a carriage ride through the Gardens at Christmas time. It was magical.

Looks like a beautiful place for a nice peaceful walk (and after all the Thanksgiving food--I may have to take more than one walk)
