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. Free Minds/Widen Ideas/Open Spirits/ Connect.
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.
