It’s now October, which means I’m starting to focus on autumn, Halloween and holiday crafts hardcore. To round out my series of fall gardening posts, I thought I’d share some photos from my awesome visit to Chicago’s Garfield Park Conservatory last weekend. If you like the photos, consider donating to their rebuilding fund. Last June, the Conservatory suffered extensive damage to its gorgeous century-old greenhouses in a CRAZY hail storm. Months later, multiple exhibits are still closed. Despite all that, what I was able to see was still completely spectacular (and free!). Below are a few of my favorite pictures from the day, and you can check more out in my Garfield Park Conservatory Flickr set.
The last two photos are of rooms currently in line for or undergoing repairs from June’s hail damage.
If all of these gardens have got you inspired, you can look over my September gardening posts:
