At the corner…

of Wells and Monroe Streets in Chicago’s Loop, I encountered a surprise the other day.  It’s called the Northern Trust Company Garden, replete with greenery, flowers, benches…and a fountain.

This is a great place to sit and read, eat lunch, talk, whatever, while listening to rushing fountain waters.  The only bad side is, this choice piece of garden is right next to the Brown/Purple Line ‘L’ tracks; interestingly, people don’t seem to mind that every few minutes, a train rushes by, cancelling the sounds of flowing water.

Here’s a close-up of part of the fountain:

Before I exited, I captured a really fringy tulip:

  1. I have enjoyed immensely reading your blog. As a writer I know you will understand if I am absent from making comments for a couple of months. I have two books I’m writing and the push is on to get them finished…so with only 24 hours in the day, I am going to continue to read and like, but my comments will be limited to replies for those who comment on my blog…thanks for the grace.

    Be encouraged!
