Arriving a little late to the party, I’m finally pulling up a seat at a relatively new photo challenge over at XingfuMama. It’s always nice to find a seat in a picturesque spot and, going through the photo files, I see that I have not only sat on some of these seats but also taken pictures of them. So for my first submission here are a few shots from my most recent visit to Cantigny Park in Wheaton, Illinois earlier this year.
Cantigny Park is undergoing extensive renovations which are likely to continue through next year but there is still a lot to see. It’s hard to imagine how you could possibly improve on a place as lovely as Cantigny, especially the gardens, but they are certainly giving it a try. I miss some of the old features and it will take some time for the new plantings to get established but I think eventually the place will come together and continue to be one of the brightest jewels in the Chicago suburbs.
