Chocolate Cosmos at the Chicago Botanic Garden

Chocolate Cosmos

Usually chocolate flowers come wrapped in foil from the candy shop, but this chocolate cosmos that we saw today the Chicago Botanic Garden is real. The color is a glowing reddish brown and it even smelt slightly of chocolate. We saw it in the Sensory Garden, along with straw flowers, which are living but feel as if they are dried or made from paper.

If you live in the Chicago area and have never been to the Chicago Botanic Garden, check your library to see if it has passes available through the Museum Adventure. The pass for the garden allows for parking, as the garden itself is free.
