Northwind FarmIf you are in the market for perennials and you live in Northern Illinois or Southern Wisconsin, this is the place to go. It is more than shopping, they have walks through their gardens, gift shops, farm animals and every kind of perennial you could ask for.
It takes me about 40 minutes to get there, several hours to take it all in and then off to Lake Geneva for lunch and other kinds of shopping :) . It makes a great day trip :)
