Instead of feeling like I’m poking myself in the eye reading social media I almost literally went to touch grass in Glencoe, IL. Beautiful weather here in Chicagoland today and my wife and I took advantage of it and got some walking time in at a beautiful place. Only several photos as I was more interested in just walking and spending time with my wife.

These water lilies are near the entrance as part of some fountains they have. Loved the way the sunlight/shadow was working for this first one.

Some wonderful color here. Hard to believe we’re at that time of year when it will be disappearing for awhile.

This photo was actually just a reminder for an idea for our own house for next year. This is in their “Enabling Garden” which has many examples of ways to garden in raised beds, containers, etc. so everyone can enjoy the experience.
