Chicago Gardens (Eye Candy)

When we lived on Howe, we liked to go to the Old Town Art Fair and Garden Walk. And the Dearborn Garden Walk. And the Sheffield Garden Walk. We loved seeing inside gardens we wouldn’t otherwise see, and we loved seeing what you could do with a small space. Here are some pictures of some of those gardens.
