Flora In Chicago

I love Chicago!
Join me for a walk around town and enjoy some of the gardens.

I sure miss my old neighborhood. Isn't it lovely? It's so clean! I didn't appreciate it while I was running to work each day!

The Art Institue

Flowers everywhere!

Michigan Avenue


Around The Art Institiute

Lincoln Park-Gardens

Conservatory-Lincoln Park

I use to walk here after a stressful week-so peaceful and pretty.



 There are flowers all over Chicago,
down Michigan Avenue, throughout the parks, in window boxes. 
I really noticed this when I took my daughter back for a visit.

I hope you enjoyed your stroll around Chicago!

What beautiful pictures, my husband is from Chicago, I was able to visit once, but I was too pregnant at the time to really get a good look around :) We will have to take another trip- looks like a beautiful place to visit!

I have never been to Chicago, but we are going for a wedding in November. I hope the weather is still nice enough to get out & about. Your pics are beautiful.

A gorgeous part of Chicago. I was going to say it reminded me a bit of New York... :) Lovely photos.

You really capture all the beauty around you with your lens. These photos are really wonderful. My girls love to travel, and Chicago is one of the places they haven't been to yet...maybe someday.

What an absolutely gorgeous place! I have only seen the inside of the airport. LOL! Didn't realize how beautiful it was. Thanks so much!

Gorgeous photos! You lived in that neighborhood??? I am so envious. I'm sure I've looked for parking there at one time or another :) Chicago is such a gem and I'm so grateful we live only 90 miles away and can enjoy the city without an airline ticket. Do you remember the restaurant called Ciel Bleu? It was one of our favorites, years ago.
