A contemplative Life = Lake Harriet – Rose Garden Minneapolis

View of Lake Harriet Gardens Minneapolis – Sunflowers © 6-5-2020

When I arrived at eight o’clock on Friday morning at the Lake Harriet Rose Garden, I didn’t expect to see many roses this early in the season. There were some magnificent Irises blooming. The surprise of the day was the Old Fashioned roses were blooming.

As I was leaving the gardens, I crossed over the road to the the Bird Sanctuary Garden. There I came upon this sculpture, which seemed to resonate with the call for change in light of recent protests. Each side was engraved with a concept that wrapped around the four sides of the stone.

Here’s a sampling of the early blooming flowers at Lake Harriet Gardens. The morning sun was low on the horizon and filtered through the petals of some of the flowers. There was a heavy storm during the previous night. The garden seemed frosh and green.

Thanks for stopping by my kitchen.

Have a good day connecting with people and nature.
