A Sunny Sunday

My mother has been visiting all week, and since she lived in Chicago for ten years from her late teens to late twenties, we've spent a lot of time visiting places she used to know.  But yesterday we drove up to the Chicago Botanic Garden in Glencoe. This is probably my favorite place in Chicago; I love to go there any time of year, and hubby and I do visit frequently.  The weather was cool, but the sky was clear, and after the dreary weather we've been having for much of the week, a welcome respite.  Here are some views:
