Blumen Gardens...in lovely Sycamore, Illinois.
Primitive, rustic, quirky, and artistic treasures
fill an old brick warehouse
and an enchanting garden shop to the brim.
Winding stone, brick, and gravel pathways
weave through luscious seasonal plant and flower displays
making the gardens a perfect neighborhood retreat.
Quaint and unique areas of the garden
make ideal spots for a wedding or an evening reception,
plein air painting or yoga classes,
and a rich variety of all sorts other special activities.
Architectural remnants and antique garden artifacts
have been lovingly revamped and recycled and renewed...
and used as display items
making the atmosphere feel nostalgic and even a bit zen like.
Whenever I visit the gardens my heart becomes light
and my spirit seems to float.
to learn about the gardens or to take your own personal garden journey. :)
