Wandering Tree Estates – 8-24-17

On August 24, a group of our members took a tour of Wandering Tree Estates.  This is a private estate that opens its gardens to visitors throughout the summer.  There is everything from a rose garden, to a Japanese style garden, to a massive train garden.  Here are some  highlights of the day.

Beautiful colorful garden near the pool

Stunning waterfall in the estate’s Japanese style garden

There were colorful beds every where

A large section of the gardens were devoted to train gardens.

  But wait, there’s more.  There is a whole building full of train displays!

Here is a close up of Millennium Park

And a circus scene

After our time spent at Wandering Trees we all had lunch.  A very enjoyable afternoon!
