But today, I'm going to take advantage of "Mother's Day" and blog about Mother's Day Brunch and our 'field trip' to the McDonald's Corporate campus in Oakbrook, IL. There is a whole amazing campus in prime real estate in Oakbrook --- as we all know, there IS money in burgers & fries. There is "Hamburger University" and the "Lodge" (run by the Hyatt) where we had brunch. One of the most outstanding features of the campus is the landscaping --- here are a few key shots I took with my little cell phone camera:
It was a stellar day - with cool breezes and clear skies....
While I know the campus has been there for a while, the mature trees give a placid feel to your view
Always a 'guppy' for a body of water, I could have stayed in this spot for hours!
And the 'biggest bang for the buck' was the Pansies, planted in copious amounts in time for Mother's Day!
I've missed my garden blog friends and checking in to see what everyone's been up to! It's been 'Bozo's Circus' here at the "Bunnies Buffet", now I just have to get caught up! Does anyone know the name of a good dependable landscape company? ... because I'm about to go 'postal' on my 'Dandelion Fields', and can't seem to get any landscapers to call me back to excavate the beast weeds and help me plant some grass seed !!!!!!!!! ...HELP!
