Chicago Botanical Garden: Source of Inspiration?

My husband continues to fill our house with plants. He spends Sunday mornings at the Garfield Park Conservatory, using it as a way to find nature and relaxation in the cold winters of Chicago but I think also compiling a list of plants to collect and grow in our 2 bedroom apartment. We recently went to the Chicago Botanical Garden with some friends who are members and took us for the morning. Zack and I had never been and we were very impressed. There is something about the connection with nature and removing myself from the city that gives life to me and fills my mind with motivation and inspiration.
