It's a beautiful place to just sit and enjoy all the various bulbs.

Thank you for the photos from the Chicago Botanical Garden. My son lived in Chicago for several years, and on one of my visits to see him, we went to the Chicago Botanical Garden. The outside display of colorful blooms was astounding. It is a magical place.

Great banner for Valentine's Day; color and shapes of the tulips look a bit like hundreds of "hearts" (albeit upside down!).

Thank you everyone.

I didn't notice the upside down hearts when I made this one, but you're right! I wonder if Sue (at least I think it's Sue that picks them?) considers things like that when selecting banners. Would make the job even more time-consuming I would think, so I'm not advocating for that... Hilarious! was just a mindless thought!

I've been a member there for probably 30+ years and it's one of my favorite walking places. I always take my ereader with everywhere I go and I enjoy finding nice and quiet spots to just sit and read between walking as well. I really enjoy it there during all seasons.
