Seeing unusual plants is a highlight of any street walk and in Winnetke Drive, I came across a Queen's Tears plant, kindly identified by the good folk at Branch Out Nursery. It almost looked like the colours had been painted on. It is a member of the bromeliad family.
Near the Cave Hill Road end, a narrow walkway between houses leads to a creek and then follows the creek to Poyner Reserve, which is on the corner of Cave Hill Road and Beresford Road. Picnic tables and a playground are in reserve.
Do you ever wonder about the origin of street names? Winnetka intrigued me, so a little research revealed that when the land around it was being subdivided the wife of the owner called one of the streets Winnetka Drive to remind her of her home town of Winnetka, 16 miles north of Chicago, USA.
