GREAT GARDENS OF THE CHICAGO AREA

You don’t have to go to England to see a “great garden” – there are many throughout Chicagoland. Our speaker, Carolyn Ulrich, defines a great garden as one worthy of being portrayed in a national magazine. Local gardeners such as Bill Brinks in Michigan City, Trudy Temple in Hinsdale and John Anderson in Rockford have achieved garden greatness in totally different ways. Carolyn is an award-winning editor of Chicago Gardening Magazine and a feature writer for the Chicago Sun-Times, Garden Design, Horticulture, House Beautiful, Chicago Tribune publications. January is a great time of year to view gardens in bloom.
