Around The Garden World - Day 16 (Chicago!)

Yesterday I talked about visit Lurie Gardens. What I didn't mention was that the walk from our downtown hotel room to the Lurie felt like I was walking along a botanical boulevard.
This was the garden bed in front of a bank on one of Chicago's busy downtown streets

The median in Chicago are works of art that almost rival  Agora  - seen in the background of this photo.
#4 son might have been the model for this sculpture

Canna, pink vinca, Setcrecia, pink Penta and Caladium - colorful planters!

Something is always going on in these raised planters along the sidewalks.

Cordyline, petunia and lime coleus.
