Don't be fooled. Inside this thin coating of sweetness is a fiery core of total insanity.

Wednesday Vignette -- The Lurie Garden in June

Way back in June 2019 I visited Chicago for one day and visited the Lurie Garden, a bucket list item for me. I deliberately chose early June because I knew that was when the blue and purple Salvia "river" would be in its most glorious flower, and I wanted very much to see that. There are plenty of other fabulous plants growing there, that flower on and off all season.  I think people who live nearby must be very lucky to be able to see the Lurie Garden at all times of the year, but then of course, I live near Heronswood, and I wouldn't trade that for any other garden.

Anyway, here's an image that I captured when I was there, that I'm sharing for my Wednesday Vignette this week.

  2. Wow - there is a salvia river in Eskilstuna, Sweden as well, but I have never seen one up close in real life. What a wonderful thing to see - thanks for sharing, Alison! That purple... WOW!

Gardening is a solitary activity. But blogging about it is a social phenomenon! I don't make money from my blog by advertising, or use it to drive customers to a business. If you liked my post, or my writing or photography, or even just one picture or turn of phrase, I'd love to hear from you. That's how I get paid.
