Although model train-geek husband discovered the can't-get-enough-of Model Railroad Garden (which is pretty cool!), my main goal for our recent visit to the Chicago Botanic Gardens was to delight in the summer flowers in bloom and take some close-up photos. I'm an avid photographer and flowers are some of my favorites subjects. I was not disappointed:

Devotion Blue Throatwort

Purple Coneflower
Flamethrower Dahlia

Prairie Sun Black-eyed Susan

Freckle Face Blackberry Lily



Mystic Haze Dahlia

The Chicago Botanic Gardens are FREE to enter.
Visitors must pay to park, but military veterans enter FREE.
Many visitors bicycle to the gardens.

Thank you for visiting,
