Subscriber Discussion Thread - What's Your Connection to the Morton Arboretum?

Full disclosure - I’ve been experimenting with the different tools Substack offers and seeking out what kinds of posts are most exciting and engaging to readers. Today I thought I’d try out something new!

Sepia toned postcard showing low stone steps with clipped hedges on either side and tall trees on the opposite side of a lawn area.
Portion of the flip side of postcard that reads "The Morton Arboretum Lisle, Illinois 'The Garden of Old Fashioned Roses' Photograph by H. A. Rounds" Written over top of the photographer's last name is "Friday AM" and underneath, "Der Bob -"
A postcard sent in June of 1947 to my grandfather’s brother - Robert.

I’d love to get to know my readers better, and one of the things I’m most curious about is the connection you all have to the Morton Arboretum. I obviously have a strong link to the Arboretum through my family and from growing up nearby. Maybe you also lived in the Chicagoland area and went often as a kid or with your kids? Perhaps you celebrated something special on the grounds or go to a seasonal event once a year but are curious to learn more about it?

Comment below and let me know - what’s your connection to the Arboretum?
