Cuneo Mansion

Back At Last!

After a LONG absence from my blog I am finally back! Gardening has kept me away, as well as some beautiful summer weather here in IL. Hard to sit indoors on the computer when the weather is so nice.

New pictures here are from my tour of the Cuneo Museum and Gardens in Vernon Hills, IL. on May 18th.
Beautiful home and grounds on 75 acres with many garden sculptures and interesting Venetian style architecture. Mr Cuneo was a prominent Chicago businessman and he purchased the mansion in 1937 and it remained the Cuneo family home until 1990.

I will add more photos later. No photography was allowed in the home but I took lots of pictures of the gardens.

Happy Halloween!
