...and then the Batteries Died!



There would have been so many MORE beautiful scenes to capture at Lakeside Park last night had my phone batteries not died!  Of course, the roses are mostly finished, but many annuals were still wearing their colors.  There was a breeze in the air, the sky was clear,  and folks of every age were enjoying the many recreational facilities in this well-maintained city park.  We found a bench to sit on and read the books we'd brought along.  It was delightful!

  1. I love the photo of the little dark ducks...all in a row at the edge of the lake!

  3. What a wonderful place to rest and relax. Is it close to where you live? I keep promising myself I'm going to go more often to an arboretum just 5 min. from us, but I don't get there. I enjoy your background bird sounds--makes your garden e-spot so real.

  4. Blu-I'd, Maybe 15 minutes from us...We used to live very near this park when our children were elementary school age. It is well-known for its roses which are past their prime.

    There are several garden spots within 10-15 minutes of us (besides the beautiful yards that we have scoped out). It's been so hot this summer that we've not visited them as often as in years past. We're trying to make up for it now that the weather is a little cooler!

    You really SHOULD get to the arboretum!
