Totally had to get out of the office this afternoon to enjoy the beautiful sunshine and blooming garden in the park.

I was trying to get some creative shots with blurred backgrounds, but it was a little hard to concentrate when tourists keep getting in the way and then the security was nagging me about how close I was getting to said flowers. OK DUDE, I get it. It wasn't like I was stepping in the flowerbed or anything, sheeesh.

The dark red/purple tulips are named Queen Of The Night and the lovely bright pink are named Don Quichotte. And how do I know this? Why I'm an expert in tulips...yeah right. The lovely garden lady at the Lurie Garden in Millennium Park told me all about them.

When I have some time to go back and talk tulips... I'm seriously going to hunt that lady down.

Hi there,

My name is Sylvia and someone forwarding your blog link to me. I think I'm the one you spoke to in the garden. I'm glad that you enjoyed your day in the Lurie Garden. Be sure that you come back soon say two weeks and the salvia river will be in full bloom. Also, I enjoyed all of your knitting posts as I am also an avid knitter. Small world huh?
