Libertyville Roses - Watershed #11
There is a small town north of Chicago which comes right out of a Norman Rockwell setting. The town square sits right in front of the old Ansel Cook Mansion. It is a beautiful home built in 1878. The focus of this posting will be the many roses that grown immediately in front of this magnificent home and are part of the town’s central park. If you are passing through town, here is a great little place to stop and rest a while, enjoying some local beauty.
This small and interesting town is part of the greater watershed of the Gardens at Waters East. To learn more about the watershed that nourishes the Gardens at Waters East, and gives life to this town and the roses growing here, check out any of the previous ten Watershed postings found in the archives of this Blog.
