I’d always heard that Chicago was a very green city (lots of gardens, not eco-friendly, though I’m sure it’s got its eco-friendly attributes…). Michigan Avenue proves it! The median plantings are gorgeous, and even the local business get in on the gardening game. The plant combos were sophisticated and exciting. I could have photographed them for hours, had the traffic-dodging not gotten a bit scary.
