July Arrives

Chicago is the city that works, the city of stockyards, the city of big shoulders and so on...but that doesn't mean we don't like cute statues of animals in our public spaces! Fight your way past the dozing old guys, the tai chi practicing women, and the frolicking dogs to check out the critters around the fountain in Washington Square Park.

Meanwhile, at home, the calladiums are up. Here are some representative samples, slugging it out against the hostas that ate Northern Illinois.
