The quality is better than what you'll find at large festivals, said Eric Melloy of Cantigny.

"This is quality over quantity," she said Saturday.

People can walk around and see the sites and come buy some art.

Warrenville artist Peter Thaddeus likes the way his art mirrors the colors of the tropics in the natural setting of Cantigny.

Visitors agree. "It's so beautiful here," said Carol Veto of South Barrington.

The Art in Bloom festival continues Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the park.
