Suburbia

Summer lawns

Summer lawns

The suburbs sustain their own landscape aesthetic, different from that of the city or country.  Whenever I visit my brother, who lives in a sweet subdivision in Palatine, I realize how much I crave those expanses of lawn and the calming sight of manicured bushes and sheltering trees.  Like many city-dwellers, I grew up in the suburbs, a habitat I nostalgically associate with order and peace.
