This is what I miss most when I’m at Maple Lake–our Chicago gardens, which have taken shape over a nearly 15-year period. Despite being constrained by the shared ownership of condo property, my husband has transformed our otherwise rather cookie-cutter surroundings into a lush, inviting suburban oasis of vibrant life.
