Easter Weekend at the Chicago Botanic Garden

This will mostly be a photo post, because I think there is plenty to see and I couldn’t add that much to what already exists. This weekend we went to the Chicago Botanic Garden to see the early spring blooms.The garden is free, though there is a per-car fee to park, except for military, which get in for free. Thanks, Botanic Garden! ^_^

Just the first bulbs are up right now, the rest of the garden still sleeping after a long winter, but those first bursts of color are hope physically formed after all the snow.

We walked along the water where the white trees are still waiting for their leaves.

BotanicGardenCrocus

And we sat in a field of giant crocus, running rampantly out of their plantings.
