Gardens at Cantigny

On the Fourth of July we visited Cantigny Park in Wheaton, Illinois. The park is the former estate of  Robert R. McCormick, publisher of the Chicago Tribune. The park includes the main house and gardens.

We enjoyed strolling through the gardens, which were in full bloom for the summer.

The park also includes a World War I museum, complete with displays of vintage tanks. No longer menacing weapons, they are now as popular as jungle gyms for kids to climb on.

Those gardens look very verdant, very inviting.
