Chicago’s Lurie Garden in Late October
The Lurie Garden is dramatically beautiful right now, and an excellent vantage spot from which to view the lakefront skyline.
Judy took a walk this afternoon during a break from the work day, and snapped these pictures with her cell phone.
Grasses and foliage provide a tapestry of gold, tan, green, brown, red, and yellow. The contrast with the skyline is exciting, almost startling.
This is also one of the few spots where you can see some dramatic fall foliage in downtown Chicago. Those red leaves belong to sugar maples, I believe.
The flowers are no longer, but Lurie Garden is still a wonderful place to walk. People who work or live in downtown Chicago should go see it at least once more before everything is frozen, then covered with white.
What gardens if any do you enjoy in October?
