Chicago Botanic Garden

Yesterday we took a trip to the Chicago Botanic Garden. It was a bee-yoo-ti-ful day. We took the tram tour around the outside edge of the Garden, we were the only ones on the tour. Can you even believe the Mum Towers? They were made by drilling holes in PVC pipe, filling it with growing medium, covering it with moss, planting mums in July, and voila. Here they are in October. I am positive I need more mums in my yard after visiting this Garden.
