Today’s ‘Lost in Plantation’ post takes us to a wonderful botanical garden in Chicago. Now if you wondered how I managed to get to Chicago to snap some beautiful plants, stop wondering: these beautiful plant images have been contributed by a local Chicago creative, Marco of the beautifully curated shop Alapash New Home offering terrariums and other botanical inspired items.

As a real plant lover Marco frequently visits the Chicago Garfield Park Conservatory and suggested to send over a few of his fab photos to expand the geographical reach of my pretty new ‘Lost in Plantation’ blog series. So let us virtually stroll amidst lush greens, prickly cacti, leafy tropical plants and some of the most amazing water plants I have seen so far (look at those yellow water flowers). I also had a proper look at the botanical garden’s website and I love that they run a service called ‘Saturday Plant Clinic’ where visitors can bring their sick houseplants for help. Such a cool idea and I think every botanical garden should include such a fab add-on.

Even though I have not been to Chicago so far, I couldn’t help but share this botanical beauty with you. Maybe I’ll make it there one day and then I know at least two things that will be on my itinerary: a visit to the Alapash New Home shop and an extensive visit of the Garfield Park Conservatory.

    Greetings,

    Those photos are breath taking. Thank you for sharing. Those amazing yellow flowers are actually a glass art installation by Dale Chihuly.

      Oh great to know! And I was wondering what kind of water plant these were!
