I was walking along this trail near my wife's office (I was picking her up and killing some time before meeting her) and I noticed this flower lit up by the late afternoon sun. I hustled back, got my tripod and took a few pictures.

The Four Columns

Located at the east end of the Hedge Garden at the Morton Arboretum. Built by architect Arthur Myhrum in 1960 and commissioned by then Chair Suzette Morton Davidson, granddaughter of the Arboretum's founder. They are almost 19.5 feet tall and covered with northern Michigan dolomite for a lasting white color. Contrary to popular belief (including my own until I read this on the official Web site), the columns do NOT represent the four Morton brothers. That's a story that Suzette made up because so many people were asking her, "wha?"
Which, frankly, is a much better story anyway. ;-)
