beautiful day @ the botanic garden

So, I am not a huge flower person... but I do love the Chicago Botanic Garden. Marcey and I met the Robinson's there to spend the most lovely day wandering the different gardens.  There was so much in bloom - pretty much everything looked great except for the roses, they were just past their time.  I really think I should try to make it up there once each season.  Next up would be Fall foliage  ... putting that on the calendar now!  Till then, enjoy some pretty flowers! Oh and I almost forgot about the crazy lilly pads!  That may have been Elliot's favorite of the day...
