This being a cold season here in Chicago\, you might not think there would be much to show\, but the Gardens will hi ghlight three staples from Japanese nature that are famous for enduring ha rsh conditions. In an event they are calling "Three Friends of Winter\," t hey will be displaying and discussing pine\, plum\, and bamboo\, three hea rty symbols of nature's determination that weather (literally!) the unspea kable cold. Stop by any or all three days for exhibits of deciduous bonsai \, family activities\, lectures\, and more. And maybe you'll learn a thing or two from the humble plum about withstanding the winter without complai ning.\n\nDate\nFriday to Sunday\, January 28 to 30\, hours depend on the e vents (check the below website)\n\n<a href=" /590242299/54281061/0/?c4e129f6=Y2hpY2dqIDEvNC8yMDExIDY6MjQ6MjEgUE0%3d&amp \;x=7665cd33" target="_blank"></a>\n\nPlace\n\nChicago Botanic Garden\n100 0 Lake Cook Road\nGlencoe\, IL 60022\n\n tshows/three_friends.php?utm_source=delivra&amp\;utm_medium=email&amp\;utm _campaign=chicgj%201/4/2011%206:24:21%20PM\n\n SUMMARY:A Weekend of Japanese Horticulture at the Chicago Botanic Gardens URL:/en/events/2011/01/28/a-weekend-of-japanese-horticulture-at-the-chicago / END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
