I cant, for the life of me, seem to find myself in this photo. I see everyone in front of me in the reflection, but not me...

As promised, here a few scenes from gardens in Millenium Park in downtown Chicago. A couple of these, forgive me, aren't garden-related, but I can't resist sharing two of the most successful pieces of public art (in my honest opinion) I've ever experienced. Though I can't say that the mirrored bean was very flattering to my figure...

Welcome to the Fine Gardening GARDEN PHOTO OF THE DAY blog! Every weekday we post a new photo of a great garden, a spectacular plant, a stunning plant combination, or any number of other subjects. Think of it as your morning jolt of green.

Plantfan writes: I think, if you are in the picture at all, you must be way back in the reflection in the line of people where the squares are replaced by the smooth paving. The order is reversed, of course, in the reflection. Thanks for these pictures. Not being able to travel any more, I am eager to see all the pictures you want to post!

solana1234 writes: I think I see you. On sculpture there is tiny little guy reflection, mom & stroller then above that and to the left is that your reflection taking a picture. I love these photos. These are the only photos I've seen of Chigago that made me think I might want to visit. Posted: 1:18 pm on September 26th
sheilaschultz writes: Millenium Park is the best thing that Chicago has ever done for it's public. It started out as a dead and incredibly ugly space in the heart of downtown, and ended up being a magnificent destination for anyone coming into the city. Thanks Michelle. Can you tell how much I love this park? Posted: 10:46 am on September 26th
SurlyJo writes: Art and gardening do indeed compliment each other! Not only in that touches of ornament in the garden add to the beauty of it, but that gardens are living pieces of art. Frank Lloyd Wright made sculptures of flowers, and gardeners "sculpt" them from the ground up. Good shots Michelle!
