Free Tulip Bulbs in Chicago

For those of you who live in the Chicagoland area, the Garfield Park Conservatory is giving away free tulip bulbs this Saturday, May 20th, beginning at 9AM in the Market Place area. Get there early because it's first-come, first-served, and a limit of one or two grocery bags per person. The bulbs are usually gone by noon. For more information, visit the official website.

I grew up across the street from the conservatory - many, many years ago. I remember, as a small child, how wonderful it smelled and the thickness of the air in the gardens.

I have been transplanted twice since living in Chicago - thank you for prompting my memory of that beautiful place.

Hello Annie. Thanks for stopping by. I'm glad that my post evoked some wonderful memories for you. I do hope that you'll be able to make it back to the Conservatory for an in person visit sometime soon :-)
