How fortunate the citizens of Chicago are to have this masterpiece in their city . This trip, I cleverly booked myself into a hotel that was under a 10 minute walk to the garden. I cleared my pre-breakfast calendar , packed for my flight to Boston that afternoon, downed a cup of in-room swill and headed out to Millenium Park.
You'd have to work at it to find a climate more dissimilar to mine, and yet this garden continues to inspire me every time I visit . Design is design; habitat is habitat. This is a living garden, surrounded by concrete and skyscrapers.Finches swayed on the seed heads, bees were industrious. I even saw a bunny.What a gift to us all.
