Garfield Park Conservatory, Chicago

Park of Aub’s graduation trip to Chicago in May of 2018 to see Hamilton included our first stop at the Garfield Conservatory. I love plants! And this place had them! It’s one of the largest conservatories in the country, often called landscape art under glass. They have lots of programs and on the day we went, they were giving away some lilies I believe, but unfortunately, they ran out right before we got to them! Shucks! A nice lady in the parking lot was leaving when we arrived and filled me in on the goodies! I hated to inform others it was too late as we left and headed for the entrance to the conservatory.

The other thing I like to do is take pictures. And, now with my Pixel Xl , I can take more and better pics! Yippee! And the girl likes to get some body part in many pics.

The main room entrance is stunning. The pond reflects the glass roof. There is an artist that displays her animals seen in the canoe!

There is room after room after room filled with plants. I was mesmerized!

They had a labyrinth I took the time to walk. I can never get enough of these!

I really hated to leave but the big city was calling!

Travel on my friends!
