I can’t remember the last time we went to the Brookfield Zoo. It might have been as long ago as July 2011. I have a file labeled 2011-07-18 and many of the pics are of that zoo, the larger of the Chicago area’s two main zoos.
I don’t care what PETA thinks, it’s a fine zoo. I posted some of the Brookfield pics at the time. But not the bright birds.
Or any of the non-animal aspects of the place, such as the topiary elephant.
Or the bronze walrus.
Or the Living Coast mural.
Or even the Theodore Roosevelt Fountain, there since 1954, though I did post the cornflowers nearby.
July is cornflower time, and we’re all better for it.
