Looking for a garden fix this weekend? Visiting the winter flower shows around Chicago is a good way to surround yourself with plants and flowers during these dreary days. If you have family and friends visiting for the holidays get them out of the house and into one of the conservatories for a couple of hours. The free Winter Flower & Train Show at the Lincoln Park Conservatory is a must, especially if you kids who like model trains. The Holiday Flower Show at the Garfield Park Conservatory, gives you a nice backdrop for family pictures. Both of these are free and easily accessible by CTA.
If you're up for a short trip check out the Wonderland Express at the Chicago Botanic Garden.
Here's a video I made last year of the Winter Flower & Train Show at the Lincoln Park Conservatory:
