Chicago Botanic Garden…


I would say that this is a beautiful spot but there are so many beautiful spots that this is just one of many.  Still, it’s one of my favorites.

So after the bookstores we went to…FLEUR


FLEUR is a beautiful flower/gift shop.  They have unique and delightful things to add to your living space.  Their plants and flowers are wonderful, fresh and healthy. I bought a tiny bar of soap that says, MADE IN CHICAGO.  The man behind the counter said that his friend makes them.  This is a delightful and fun place to visit.  IMG_5639 IMG_5640 IMG_5641 IMG_5642

I’m positive that a wee sprite lives under the petal.  I waited for her to come out but sprites are very shy, so I just left part of a cookie for her to find later, when everyone was gone.
