Through September, The Morton Arboretum will be featuring a collection of 23 copper frog sculptures engaging in various activities. If you are a frog fan, this is a good time to go. Of course, anytime is really a great time to go to The Morton Arboretum.
Last weekend, we finally had the opportunity to drop by for a visit. I truly enjoy that The Morton Arboretum's nature-influenced art exhibits add a treasure hunt element to the visit. Really pleasant to find a surprise along some of your normal routes!

Who would not be in love with the American Gothic frogs?

The landscape is quite green and dotted with flowers all over. Of course, the preserve will only become more vibrant in months to come. But, we were delighted with what we saw. I am sure that plenty of leaves have filled in since our visit, so it may be more difficult to see the birds.
Near the entrance, the arboretum has a natural billboard. Pretty cool concept!
I was surprised by how close this starling let us get! Must have been good eats in the grass!
Of course, no visit to The Morton Arboretum with the kids is complete without a visit to the Children's Garden. I really loved how one section looked from the outside yet partially enrobed in flowers!
