Cantigny - Part 1 The Formal Garden

I spent the better part of yesterday wandering through the gardens at Cantigny. I have too many pictures to showcase in one post so I will share them over the next few days.

Today I will share photos from the stunning Formal Garden there. I hope you enjoy the following picutres. These really just skim the surface of what one can see and experience at the formal gardens.
