What more fitting place for my final entry in Becky’s Square Tree Photo Challenge than at the Morton Arboretum. I close this post, as I very often do, with a picture of my dear mum. She was always up for any jaunt that I might suggest and I know she really enjoyed our visits to the Arboretum. Thank you, Becky, for this wonderful challenge.
I had intended to include Lombard in my Square Trees in Illinois post but I thought Lilacia Park deserved a spot of its own for Becky’s Square Tree Photo Challenge.
Looking for Square Trees for Becky’s Square Tree Photo Challenge, I found these in the photo files. If you are familiar with Illinois you may recognize some of these places. Images were captured in and around:- Arlington Heights, Batavia, Cairo, Des Plaines, Elgin, Long Grove, Marion, Mount Prospect, Oakbrook, Rockford, South Barrington, Starved Rock, West Chicago and Wheaton.
As you might guess, I couldn’t let Becky’s Square Trees Photo Challenge go by without sharing a few images from the Chicago Botanic Garden.
I thought I’d travel a little further afield for my third entry in Becky’s Square Tree Photo Challenge and take a look at some square trees in and around Alta, Arches National Park, Guardsman’s Pass, Snowbird and Temple Square in Utah.
My second entry for Becky’s Square Tree Photo Challenge has a more formal setting at Cantigny Park in Wheaton.
Becky’s Square Photo Challenge is back and this month the topic is Trees. By their very nature, trees are not that easy to capture in a square picture, Most of the tree images in my photo files don’t fit the bill, they’re either too tall or too wide but, by including a bit of scenery or on the odd occasion some wildlife or zooming up close, I think I’ve found a few shots that may work. So to kick off my entries for the Square Trees Photo Challenge, here are some trees at Spring Valley Nature Center in Schaumburg.
