Summer is almost over...next week is "back to school" week in Minnesota. But before summer ends, I have some summer photos to share with you. I mentioned last month that I wanted to visit the summer flower show at the Como Park Conservatory. Well, I finally did, and it was gorgeous. Here are a few photos from my visit...
|Water gardens, filled with ornamental plants, surround the zoo buildings and the Conservatory. I found this Mosaic Plant fascinating.|
|Inside the Conservatory, the Sunken Gardens were filled with summer flowers. This year, Como's gardeners featured plants from Impressionist paintings. The sunflowers, of course, are an homage to van Gogh.|
|Children always love the North Garden in the Conservatory, because it includes fish ponds. I love watching the fish, too, but this time I was most fascinated by this stunning pop of red foliage, glowing amongst all the greenery.|
