This Cantigny Bower Not My Prison
Back again on July 6. In the meantime, Uncle Sam Wants You (To Use Pyrotechnics).
Besides roses, there were plenty of other flowers and assorted plants at the gardens of Cantigny, including a Begonia Empire that featured nonstop pink, nonstop deep red, nonstop orange, nonstop fire; an Impatiens Kingdom; and a Millet Purple Majesty Realm. But nothing on the grounds pleased me more than the pergola, or if you prefer, bower or arbor. Whatever you call it, the one at Cantigny had several comfortable places to sit. This is the eye-level view from that sitting-place.
And looking up.
When, unfortunately, you have to leave the wonderful pergola of Cantigny, because all things pass, at least there's a nearby pond to walk around. Eventually, on the other side of the pond, you'll get a look at the entirety of the pergola, along with its reflection in the pond.
