Our neighbors Craig and Sam have lived in their lovely small Chicago home for many years and as a regular passer-by, we'd have to say that every bit of care and effort that has gone into their front yard garden has been worth it - it is easily our favorite in the neighborhood. We love walking by and hearing the fountain gurgling and seeing the the fu lions guarding the entrance to their building through the gate...
We had the chance to photograph this somewhat secret garden (one of those magical "hidden in plain view" city spaces) recently to share with Apartment Therapy readers. The flowers are lush, the tree is stately and the "outdoor decor" suits both the space and the owners - a little exotic and lots of fun.
Thanks for the tour, Craig and Sam!
