The Gardens of Downtown Geneva

Last week, we joined a neighbor family to take the kids for a ride on the Metra to downtown Geneva. We've both got one-year-olds, and they'd never ridden on a train, so we decided to make a day of it; do some shopping, and have lunch. Geneva puts on a good show when it comes to gardening. If you've ever been to Gardenology, you know this town takes gardening seriously! Take a look!

If you go, you've got to visit The Mossy Twig (31 S. Third Street). It's a nature-inspired gift shop run by the owners of The Pure Gardener. I could have done some significant damage to the checking account in that store. I saw this sculpture of two "leaf sprites" by artist Nana Thebus, and had to have it. It immediately reminded me of the kids. Now I just have to find the perfect spot to hang it.
