A Day at Chicago Botanic Garden

The name is really misleading - Chicago Botanic Garden is really located in Glencoe, IL which is a bit of a drive from where I live, but this is the 2nd time this year that me and Max have gone! (Note: Need membership!) 

 Today we brought along my friend Shardae who is also a fashion designer! A fun person to bring along.

Every time I'm at the Chicago Botanic Garden, there is something new I never knew existed (today being my 3rd time there.) Today I found out that there is 15 acres of prairie grassland out there. How could I have possibly missed that? 
There are 24 gardens overall, but the one I tend to spend much of my time in is the Japanese Garden. We actually found a 2nd Zen Garden with an enclosed rooftop, table, and seats which I had never known to exist there today! 
Here, Shardae and I are nearby the Waterfall Garden, laughing at our new duck friend taking a bath in the water below.

It was so sunny in most of these photos! I kept closing my eyes.
