It’s amazing how time can slip through our fingers. In my mind it felt as if we’ve visited Garfield Park Conservatory many times over the years, but then looking back through the history of my photos, I see the last time was in February 2010! How can that be? Part of that may be due to the terrible damage the conservatory suffered in June 2011 when large hail broke many of the glass panels in their roof.
In any case, in the past we typically visited in the colder months when there wasn’t much to photograph outdoors. This time, however, I decided a warm-weather trip would be worthwhile so we could check out the conservatory’s outdoor gardens which are even more beautiful and interesting than I remember! From the flowers, to the sitting areas, to the vegetable garden, the best place in the conservatory is outdoors.
