Several weeks ago, I spoke to the Garden Club of Mt. Prospect at the Friendship Park Conservatory in Des Plaines. I arrived early so I would have time to experience the conservatory before my presentation. Outside, winter winds were gusting over 50 mph but inside the conservatory, the air was warm and the flowers and foliage were fetching. Walk with me.
The conservatory is small. It would be the perfect lunchtime escape for folks working in the area. The sound from the waterfall and fountain is relaxing, and the plants are in tip-top shape. Hours and contact information can be found here. Garden with me!
