On one of my last trips around Chicago before I left for warmer climes, my friend C. and I went to the Garfield Park Conservatory, an excellent conservatory in a perhaps not so gorgeous part of the city. It has rooms by various plant and climate regions (a desert room, a tropical room with tons of palms, a fern room), some nice garden space, including a Monet garden after the one at Giverny in France, and these undoubtedly priceless Chihuly flowers sticking up from a water feature. I'm glad I got to see it before I left.
I don't know when the exciting NC photos will start appearing, but I'll try to cough something up soon.
