At the shop...

that's where I've spent much of my time lately. We did a new display for the red, white and blue. Sorry if you read both blogs, but this is what I'm up to this week so it's a bit of a repeat of the shop pic.

Morton Arboretum

I want to thank everyone for their emails and thoughts since I posted about Louie. Your kindness means so much. We miss him every day.

Joe and I visited Morton Arboretum on Saturday. It was a lovely day.

The cicadas were everywhere...and the sound they make is straight out of a sci-fi movie.

View as you come out of the arboretum library.

A quiet little reading garden off of the library reading room.And espaliered Ginko in the reading garden. I have never seen this done with a Ginko before. Very beautiful.
Cute little guys and gals everywhere....they have a great children's garden...with lots of water to play in!

Sculpture by Patrick Dougherty entitled Xanadu. Beautiful.

They have an awesome treehouse! Way up in the pines...with swinging bridges...straight out of a story book. I have a fantasy of someday having a wonderful treehouse.
