Throwback Thursday: The Chicago Botanic Garden In Spring

DSC_0151

Today I popped into my favorite flower shop in Lake Bluff, Twigs, for a dose of color therapy on this rainy, 38 degree day.  I picked up some flowering cherry branches for my mantel, which reminded me of the pictures I took at The Chicago Botanic Garden last April.  I can’t wait for everything to bloom again!

  1. After surviving this never-ending Chicago winter, I am desperate for spring, and this post made me very happy! Thank you for brightening this dreary day:-).

  2. A cornelian cherry tree is the earliest bloomer around. Our four year old one at the end of the drive is popping into bright yellow blooms. Cornelian cherry trees are also known for their uniform round and tidy shape.
