|Walking with Nature ©CindyRippe2013 - quote by John Muir|
The gardens I visit most often are Morton Arboretum, Chicago Botanic Gardens, Fernwood Gardens, Pilcher Park and Lake Katherine. As a member of Morton Arboretum I have reciprocal privileges at botanical gardens across the county. Many times when we plan a trip we work around a visit to one of these gardens. Entry or parking is usually free with my Morton Arb membership card which really adds up by the end of the year. The walking paths are great for exercise, the fresh air and beauty is soul restoring, and there are great ideas for planning your own garden. Search for a garden near you on the American Horticultural Society Reciprocal Admissions Program site.
Which garden can you recommend that we visit on our next trip?
I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune in. George Washington Carver
