With temperature reaching into the upper 80's this week, it's safe to say that spring is here and summer is not far away. I spent some time walking around and enjoying Chicago's parks, especially downtown, and reflecting on art outside and the art of being outside, that is, our landscape designers and their parks. You can read that article on ArtSlant.
Of course I ended up with more images than I could use, so enjoy the slideshow above of spring in Chicago!
