We've rented a garden plot for the summer at a place called Hickory Lodge. I have long known about Hickory Lodge, but always thought it to be semi-private. Like an office for the Parks District, or someplace that you had to rent. Well, as it turns out, you can go anytime, though few do. It's a really, really cool place with beautifully landscaped areas to play in and explore. More on Hickory Lodge at a later date, but for now I'd like to show photos of the blossoming loveliness at Hickory Lodge today.
And check out this awesome tree-- perfect for little ones to practice their climbing skills.
